//Multiple Scale Shingle Analysis

//As part of my investigations into shingle moment, distribution, and layout, I have summarised my investigations conducted on site.

 

// MICRO//MACRO//ANALYSIS

Through the trip I was collecting and cataloguing shingle across Dungness, initially call the “survaying the powers of 10” (http://ds7.osa.digital/index.php/2016/10/09/surveying-the-powers-of-10/) however land restrictions meant I was re directed, but ultimately maintained the premise.

The resultant collection of samples were analysed at a micro and macro scale, placed in the landscape, and assessed against each-other.

There is significant variation in the distribution of shingle deposits thought the site, although similarity in texture, shape and composition can be seen randomly across the site.

//SHINGLE_SWATCH//SIZE//GRID//SCALE

In doing the leg work for the survey I took scalable images at locations across Dungeness (indicated above) from which to identify variation in size and colour. The resulting swatch illustrates a huge variety of shingle deposits, although many similar deposits are represented at multiple points across the site.

//SHINGLE_SCAN

Shingle was also scanned to help assess variation in size and relationship although this was more of a test of principle rather than a thorough investigation.
