Mixed media installation, pylon art, an environmental art work, steel sculpture / stahlskulptur.
The catalyst for this group of sculptures is the new Beauly to Denny power line. I began to wonder if there could be any benefit in leaving some of the old transmission towers in situ to be recycled into ecosystems, replacing lost forests and ever decreasing habitats - instead of being scrapped. Through colonising the structures with native plants I aim to create a positive approach to questions about the beauty, use and sustainability of man made structures in the landscape.
