There is an ancient forest buried beneath the beach between Borth & Ynys Las on the west coast of Wales, north of Aberystwyth. 6000 years ago a rise in sea levels covered the land, which has resulted in the forest being buried beneath the sands of the beach. Today, at low tide, gnarled & eroded stumps are revealed, preserved by the sand and the peat in which they lie.
Rob Davies, a contemporary artist living in the area and would like to site the cast of a single Ceredigion oak tree in the inter-tidal zone on the beach adjacent to, but not within, the visible section of the ancient forest. The idea relates to our changing climate, evidenced by the work of the IPCC, and the rise in sea levels that is being recorded. It has resulted in Natural Resources Wales declaring that ‘there will be managed realignment from Ynys Las 2025 and Borth from 2055’. Tree will draw attention to this unfolding narrative and will relate to the last time this landscape was inundated.
