The Pathfoot Building.

September 19, 2016

As of 19th September, 2016, I’ll be working as artist in residence at University of Stirling’s Pathfoot Building – a self initiated project made possible by a Creative Scotland grant.  I’ll be there two days a week for six months – making work that focuses on Pathfoot’s modernist architecture in relation to the art collection housed there, the surrounding landscape and the people who use the building.


Film 1. In and around Pathfoot (4 mins 3 secs).

Film 2. Sarah Bromage’s high jinks (44 secs).

Film 3. Jane Cameron & soul payback (27 secs).

Film 4.  Animation of Bertoia chair (44 secs).
