Heritage Open Days exhibition

Our exhibition "Scientific Stranger" took place over four days in September (8th/9th/10th/11th) as part of Heritage Open Days.

We installed two projection works in the Blacksmith's Shop in Allenheads and received 57 visitors over the four day period.

It was the first public showing of the first works we have produced for exhibition in this project. We spent the four days discussing the works amongst ourselves and with visitors. The more time we spent in it, the more the Blacksmith's Shop seemed to be a very fitting place to site the works as themes of making, construction and planning emerged from these discussions.
