I Can't Believe It's Bog Butter
Bog butter refers to really old butter found in bogs.
Reasons for burying butter vary according to time period. I’ve been using bog butter as a tool to generate an alternative methodology and a multi modal approach for engaging with sites of history.
The ritual created as a result of this pulls through different objects from stages within the timeline of bog butter which come together to generate a new ‘taskscape’ based on those before it, a term coined in Tim Ingold’s ‘The Temporality of the Landscape.’
I have presented this research in the style of an educational film.
