A Forest of Signs

Artist and Lecturer in Fine Art at Central St Martins School of Art & Design, now part of the University of Arts, London, Susan Trangmar is a visual artist working in the context of landscape, place and site and in particular the evolving relationships between material formations of ‘nature’ and ‘culture’.

When she learnt that her employers, Central St Martins School of Art & Design, were going to move from their Holborn premises to their new home in Granary Square, Kings Cross, Artist and Lecturer in Fine Art, Susan Trangmar set out to walk her regular routes in and around Bloomsbury to try to record an instance of time and place, framing the city by its street trees. 

Susan works with the media of photography, moving image and sound to explore our experiences of landscape, place and site; and in particular, the evolving relationship between formation of ‘nature’ and ‘culture’.

Andrew Stuck from Rethinking Cities, the Producer of Talking Walking, accompanied her on a walk from Goodge Street tube station, very early on a chilly Sunday morning in January 2013.  Susan’s curiosity of the juxtaposition of trees and buildings, makes for an intricate slow therapeutic walk.
