Heidi C Morstang works with moving image, photography and experimental documentary films. Her work is rooted in the physical, and she is interested in the social, cultural, mythological and archaeological histories embedded in landscapes. She uses images to explore and gain insight into these and the subtle relationships between them.
She has worked on several international collaborations with historians and scientists.
Her work has been exhibited widely internationally since 1995, and works are held in various private and public collections.
She is a lecturer in photography at Plymouth University, UK, where she co-convenes the Land/Water and the Visual Arts Research Group and is part the Photography Research Group (Media and Art Research Centre). She is part of the operations team at the Sustainable Earth Institute.
