On commission: Rhiannon Adam documents fracking in the UK

22 October 2018


Last Monday 15 October 2018, fracking began in the UK for the first time since 2011 at Caudrilla’s Preston New Road site, Lancashire. For the past two months, Rhiannon Adam has immersed herself in the local communities and landscapes surrounding the site. Mid-way through the commission, and in light of recent developments, we take a look at how her project has progressed.
