The Hermit/Inside Stone

It’s been far too long, I know, I know. I’ve been insanely busy lately putting together my MFA degree show and it’s pretty much all over bar the crying.

Here are some rough stats for you – A cairn 109m above sea level in Lewis, 12 tension cables, 400 pieces of laser cut acrylic, over 1km of fishing line, seating based on the occult centre of the space, several buckets of black paint, over 20 hours breathing in toxic plastic lasercutter fumes, 4 speakers, a 16 minute long quadrophonic mix, an arduino controlled stepper motor and a whole pile of blood sweat and tears.

Inside Stone 11

You can read about the piece in detail here including a detailed pdf of the motivations/process/etc. and view images of the installation on flickr.

To coincide with the exhibition, I’ve put together a release of a stereo mix of the piece (down from 4 channels in the installation) and a couple of other related works. Stream it below but if you do like it, please consider paying for it as I’m really very poor at the moment (as ever).

A very limited number of CDRs of the release will be available at the show which opens next Friday (16th August) at DJCAD, Dundee. My work is showing in Room 239 in the Textiles Corridor of the Crawford Building. Hope to see you there.
