Exposition

‘It’s cowboy country up there’: Ruination and Ruinenlust in the wilds of Broughton (2020)

Joanne Scott

About this exposition

This article articulates and reflects on dual practices that arise from concurrently responding to my home locality through creative research and resident action. It considers these parallel practices through the dual notions of wildness and ruins/ruination. The critical writing is punctuated with artefacts of both practices, generating a mode of intermedial writing that, through placing these elements and critical reflection in direct conversation, allows feeling-thoughts to emerge about the process of researching a locality in which you are embedded, as well as the wild and ruined features of contemporary urban landscapes.
