Develop mix media piece Listen to the Trees' a series of wall mounted pieces created from scorched books that represent the devastation of the woods, the metal and glass components representing small hopes.
This was developed with Mark Powell for Perth Museum & Art Gallery in 2015 in response to the furniture-maker and educator Tim Stead, whose philosophy resonated with our own ideas. This series had taken a part of transFORM exhibition in Robert Gordon University in Aberdeen in 2016, touring to Rotheshall in Glenrothes from May 2016.
