Creative Pathways Project – Lost & Found public art walks
During the spring of 2017 it was my pleasure to lead a series of four public art walks into Sanquhar woods in my home town of Forres in North East Scotland.
During the walks we visited the site where I had previously extracted birch trees to make the work, keep the wolf from the door. Whilst here, we each had time to become a little bit lost in the woods and to record our observations of both the internal and external world.
These observations were collected as a series of notes, which I then incorporated into some new site specific work to be installed in the summer.
This project was part of the Forres area creative place programme which is supported by Creative Scotland. The project was awarded a Project Arts award by Local arts organisation Findhorn Bay Arts. The creative pathways project was a partnership between myself and Forres Community woodlands trust.
