This short compilation of project images is a distilled version of the project presentation I gave to participants, residents and pupils at Ullapool Museum in October to celebrate the end of both my research in Ross-shire and ‘Future Fossil Collection’ installation shown at the museum throughout the summer. My sights are now set on producing a collection of visual artworks based on my research findings which will explore and illuminate the magnitude and nature of litter on our beaches and in the marine environment.
The multi-media artworks will form the basis of an exhibition which will tour 5 venues in coastal locations around Scotland over the next two years. The exhibition will expand incrementally with specific pieces created with participatory contributions and will include a series of presentations and events that will take place both inside gallery locations and outside on the beaches, ice towers, quaysides. In addition my work in Shetland will include a sci-art educational program .
The project will culminate in a final exhibition in Edinburgh with related performance event on the Firth of Forth on World Environment Day 2017. To enable my ambitious plans to take shape I will soon be launching a Crowd Funding appeal and directly writing to well known people who speak out and support environmental causes. If you can think of anyone I could try approaching please leave a comment at the bottom of the post.
