Performing Mersea Island

Since early 2020 sensingsite has been engaging in a collective response to the material and sensory nature of Mersea Island, Essex. We were first introduced to the island, located in the Colne Estuary just south of Colchester, through the Museum of London Archaeology (MOLA), and began our work in early 2020. As initial access was restricted by the Coronavirus lockdown, we conducted visits using Google Street View, which immediately introduced a critical awareness of differing techniques of media representation. Our subsequent and ongoing use of online Miro Boards as a dynamic platform for sharing material and ideas has become key to our working process, together with physical visits to the site.
