REPORTING TO THE LANDSCAPE

Reporting to the Landscape was an intervention in public space. Several sound tags were attached to the sculpture group the Family of Man (1970) by Barbara Hepworth. These tags played interviews with refugees from Africa and the Middle East. These new residents of Yorkshire described the landscapes of their homeland and their newfound relationship with Yorkshire. The sculptures of Hepworth stand on a hill in an English landscape park. They are part of a universalist tradition and are described in the YSP catalog as “an exploration not only of an individual’s journey through life, but humanity as a whole”.
