‘Excavations past’ by Andrew Lacon looks at abandoned industrial sites such as mines and quarries that have been reclaimed by the natural landscape and other industrial landscapes that coexist within the environment. I think its an interesting project, and for me evokes two main responses, one being an environmental concern and the other being a sense of escapism and almost serenity. The abandoned landscapes are now hidden pockets within the countryside, the kind of place you would explore when you were young.
