Current themes in the work include silence, slowness, the act of non arrival, and the introduced. Through the use of technology in particular video I intend to arrest and slow down what is often overlooked or discarded.

Bothy Hunting Part 1

Blue Hills is a contemplative journey through vast landscape. Extracts of a narrative spoken by the last remaining builder of the Howff are interwoven with an operatic sound track that was enjoyed high up in the mountains by way of a make shift aerial broadcasting live from Milan.
The viewer becomes part of the enduring folk law that surrounds this hidden space.

'Part document, part fiction, the film Blue Hills maps both the external landscape of the Scottish Highlands and an internal journey in search of a secret. The film slowly unfolds as we move through the landscape offering glimpses of narratives and possible meanings. Blue Hills explores the creation of a secret hide-away that is legendary in the Cairngorms and has remained hidden for over 60 years'.

Bothy Hunting Part 2

A series of light box works reveal the interior of the Secret Howff located in the Scottish Highlands. Remnants of those that have combed the hills in search of the bothy and been successful are the subject of this series of works.

Logbook shows a make shift sling suspended from inside the space containing the written evidence of those that made the journey. Other works catalogue the lost items or empty bottles that hint at the past occupants of this secret place.
