BA (Hons) Photography
Phoebe Mansfield is an experimental visual artist who primarily works with collage, photo-sculpture and a combination of analogue and digital photographic methods.
Recurring themes in her work include the study of landscapes and the natural world, exploring concepts of absence and loss that come as a result of our destructive human impact on the planet. Materiality and the idea of the image as object are an essential aspect of her practice, encouraging a more personal and intimate interaction between the viewer and the work.
Her current project, 'One Hundred Seconds', explores the impact of coastal erosion on seaside towns and villages across East Anglia – one of the most at-risk coastlines in the UK. The project observes the disruption and displacement of local landscapes and settlements resulting from the encroaching shoreline, contemplating on the areas local history as it is lost beneath the sea.
