Drawn from a body of work made between 1993 and 2006 the book reveals Whitehead's place sensitive approach to performance making and the collaborative nature of the enquiries he makes with other artists, writers, the public and animals. `...a field of enquiry which continues to preoccupy Whitehead's practice: how can we express (and share) the infinite complexity of a place, a place that we can never fully know, and our physical and sensual relationship with it?' Heike Roms . Yn cynnwys mynegeion = Includes indexes. Un tudalen yn Gymraeg = One page in Welsh
