A Commonplace Book of ATLAS edited by Emma Nicolson and Gayle Meikle.
The book charts the first eight years of ATLAS’ practice organising our activity under four thematic headings: Located, Praxis, Temporalities and Resilience. The book aims to record the evolution in our practice and the essential contributions the artworks, artists, and communities we have worked with have made to the imaginaries of our remote rural location.
A Commonplace Book is a curated collection of written extracts, reflective notes, explorative ideas and biographical inserts. It is a characteristically idiosyncratic organised depository of information devised for future reference. Typically, the book is organised through a personal narrative, combining copied passages of existing writing alongside diaristic entries and litanies.
