A collaboration with writer and performance poet Rufus Mufasa (Ruth Evans) – with her unique style rooted in hip-hop culture.

Inspired by the Lost Connections series of mixed media paintings by Marion Cheung (Art in the Attic, Porth) Rufus Mufasa wrote new works for LANDMARKS, performed with Unity at Cardiff's annual 'Made in Roath' arts festival in 2017.

Landmarks concerns the revelation that 'nature' words such as 'acorn' and 'ivy' have been removed from the Oxford Junior Dictionary to make way for words from the digital revolution. Mufasa and Unity explore eroding connections to the natural world including themes of social media, advertising and motherhood.

As Robert Macfarlane casts spells in his book 'The Lost Words', they cast spells too - with loop pedals and vinyl. Landmarks ignites debate about language, nature, poetry, technology and hip-hop culture. 

The artists recreated an environment of paintings and installation with the support of the Arts Council Wales' Noson Allan //Night Out scheme.
