Dungeness: Mapping A Bleak Landscape

A graphics trip to Dungeness earlier on in May, we were given the brief to explore a 10 X 10 m spot among the huge expanse. All the information had to be recorded, sound, dimensions, colour, structure, terrain, objects, relationships, geology and the effects of weathering. Individually we investigated a different subject where i was recording the dimensions of the structures in the space. The shacks and the winch that can be seen in the photographs. What was interesting about investigating such a small plot in such a huge area was that it was an attempt to understand something about Dungeness. Its completely bleak landscape, with only an ominous power station in the back drop and the few houses to line the road.
