Research undertaken with the isle of Eigg in the Scottish Small isles in late 2008 became a thorough investigation of the way a largely new population, who immigrated in the 1980’s, related to their contemporary and historical landscape.
With a second trip in 2009 as artist in residence, it became known as 'Project Eigg'.
Beginning with interviews it led to interventions with island buildings and monuments. It fed into performances out on the hillsides about lost mythologies and the creation of new ones.
It also produced an unusual set of audio walking guides for the island.
See projecteigg.info for more information.
A strong theme throughout the project was that of re-telling and re-presenting through diverse means, demonstrating creative potential within the confusion and control of information. And this continues in the Eigg Lectures series
