William Bock (First Prize) May Daily #4 Illegal Dump, Ireland

During lockdown in Ireland, William captured daily encounters with the environment using his body and a camera. An illegal dump spoke of the complex human relationship with nature. To live sustainably we need to notice, engage with and understand who and what lives on the land around us. William’s practise delves into the experiences of living between cultures, landscapes and identities, through the practice of walking, foraging and conversation with others. His work is interdisciplinary and process led: using photography, painting, sound recording, performance and installation to explore the connections between people and their environment. He completed a BA in Performance Design and Practise at Central St Martins and an MA at London City & Guilds School of Art.
