About : Alice Angus and Joyce Majiski created this StoryCube set for Topographies and Tales. They are designed to be played with, used as a thinking tool for ideas about landscape, navigation, myths and  environments, belonging and home.  Pile them up together, throw them like dice, arrange into maps, build into landscapes of stories…

Topographies and Tales is about the relationship between people, identity and place. It unearths local and personal stories and myths exploring how concepts of landscape are shaped by ideas of belonging and home.

It is a personal exploration of the intimate way people form relationships with their environments, it takes a journey through the tall tales and perceptions the artists encountered on their travels in the west of Scotland and the Yukon.

Topographies and Tales was a long term collaboration between Alice Angus and Canadian artist Joyce Majiski, that included a film, creative lab and publications. The collaboration began in 2003 in Ivvavik National Park in the Canadian Arctic then in Glenmore Lodge in the Cairngorm Mountains, Scotland, the Klondike Institute for Art and Culture in Dawson City, Canada, Joyce’s Tuktu Studio in Whitehorse and the Proboscis Studio in London.

At the Water’s Edge with Joyce Majiski by Alice Angus

AboutAt the Water’s Edge
Finding that so much of her work on human relationships to land and urban space leads to issues around rivers and water Alice Angus is beginning a series of water based investigations exploring different perspectives of what it means to care for the environment and how it can affect the way in which water environments are managed and cared for. The dialogues are being recorded and shared as Diffusion eBooks and StoryCubes. Through encounters, journeys and conversations with people who experience rivers in different ways the series aims to bring the discussion of environmental issues to a human dimension and consider how human creativity, spirituality and inventiveness in everyday life; from city workers to gardeners, urban planners to bus drivers, amateur botanists to academics is both witness to environmental change and fundamental to creating solutions to environmental issues.

A Conversation with Joyce Majiski
Joyce Majiski is an artist, naturalist and river and wilderness guide whose work focuses on the natural world. This eBook includes excerpts from a conversation with Joyce about two rivers; the Tatshenshini and the Firth. Both wilderness rivers in North Western Canada.
