An interactive art piece that explores both the psychogeography of English landscapes and forgotten historical harms that politicised English traditionalism has had on individuals and marginalised groups.

I wanted to explore, through both storytelling and allegorical visual narratives, my difficult past experiences of English nationalism and identity, and the history and legacy of English environments and folklore. A particular focus was to be my own lived experience as a queer, neurodivergent artist who had grown up in a right-wing Christian Sect.
