'Goldmine' (Guy Begbie 2014), is one of a series of ciné-roman, drawing, text and sound works. These investigate an awareness and articulation of time and space, in the context of moving through a landscape of archaeological/historical residue. The works are presented as a distillation of the overground/underground experience.
Field research has been carried out by the artist at the Dolaucothi Roman Gold Mines. A process of visual and sound recording has been used on site, to create a resource to make the work. The surface and underground Roman gold mines are located in the rural environment of the Cothi Valley, Pumsaint, Carmarthenshire, Wales.
