I am looking forward to a week in Orkney this summer recording sounds for an upcoming collaboration with poet and photographer Alastair Jackson, visual artist and printmaker Moira Buchanan and photographer Ingrid Budge.
'The CAIM Collective have come together as four distinct and separate artists, in our shared interest in the Scotland’s wild coastal places and a desire to capture a sense of space and wonder. Many things are not able to be seen properly. They may be unclear, hazy or gauzy. Landscapes may be misty or seen from an odd angle, or just unfamiliar to the viewer. They may be viewed in bad weather, or poor visibility. Our 2017 project aims to define the Orkney land/seascapes' relationship with the vagaries of the elements. Structure and absence are reoccurring elements in our work, as are juxtaposition and the unexpected. This project will bring together the disciplines of photography, poetry, printmaking and natural sound recording as an immersive whole which the viewer will be able to interact with.'
