Research interests

Epha Roe is an artist / researcher whose interests broadly cover theories of landscape, place and agency. They are currently working on their practice-based PhD on building a photographic, historical and theoretical exploration of ancient oak trees in England that form part of the Tree Council's 2002 list of 'Great British Trees'. In brief, this project aims to investigate through photography and critical analysis, the role that ancient oak trees play in constructing ideas of place, particularly in relation to notions of heritage and agency. Asking the questions: why are particular trees considered as heritage? how are heritage practices carried out and managed within the natural environment? and how does natural phenomena conceived as heritage 'push-back' against those practices?
