In the meantime in Anglesey Horizon have applied for planning permission to remove all hedges, walls and natural features from a massive area just so as to be ready to build a new NPS should they get the go-ahead. Of course they are recording everything and plan to rebuild and replant every missing item should they be unsuccessful in their project. I am trying to get hold of their records – an item by item drawing of everything down to the last hedgerow plant and stone should be quite interesting.
Great to see Jess’s work selected for Mostyn Open and presented in a new form – looks good like this. A very prestigious show to be in. Nice to meet up with both Jess and Alana there.
Kate williams model of Dounreay, made of uranium glass, was know to me already from online images when we started our project. Nice to see two versions of it recently, one in Thurso museum and one in the Museum of Scotland in Edinburgh. Spooky?
The spanking new building at Wick, North Scotland, housing the archives of the Nuclear industry together with local archives. Some fantastic artefacts from the industry are housed there with full public access, together with some top secret documentation of all aspects of the industry’s history.
Here are Bridget and myself talking about our archive project at Dundee Contemporary Arts, in association with Dundee University.
