Tracy Hill

Tracy Hill’s practice considers the historical legacy of post-industrial landscapes, our understanding, relationship and connection to ideas around place.

Perceptions of mapping, digital navigation and how we encounter our urban and rural spaces connect with a modern obsession for locating, ordering and fragmenting our experiences. Hill considers that in order to reconnect with ideas of place we must first reconnect with the aesthetic; understand the experience, knowledge and memory of the physical encounter.

Though combinations of print, installation and hand drawn imagery Hill invites a new perspective to these landscapes.
Disrupted and reimagined Hill’s images require a visual and cognitive attention intrinsic to walking occupying the place where our digital and physical worlds overlap.
