Name:
Gillian McFarland

An art therapist involved in collaborative research and development on climate change and the impact of erosion through time on the physical and psychotopography of landscapes.


I am a state registered art therapist and am interested in the research into the therapeutic use of the natural world for wellbeing

I am involved in collaborative research and development projects on creative thinking and making, with a focus on Climate Change and the impact of erosion through time on the physical and psychotopography of landscapes.

Through my practice, I look to explore the embodied knowledge held within the physicality of our world. Dynamics of time, space and impactful forces are evidenced in the structures of the landscape. My work explores humanity’s relationship with geography, focusing in on these events that are now termed the Anthropocene.
