The video work South by Southwest was exhibited alongside the un-hatched eggs of the failed attempts to breed offspring by the last golden eagle in England. One theory defended by Dave Walker who has been observing  the eagle for the past thirty years is that his inability to reproduce is linked to a change in food supply which in turn is a result of climate change.

The work traces eagle’s movements through the notes of Dave Walker, who has been tracking him over the last 30 years. Dave Walker’s words impose eagle-defined co-ordinates over the picturesque landscape to propose a new kind of mapping.
