The project: 

Uisge-Aqua is a creative project about watery dreamscapes-landscapes in the Scottish Highlands. The subtitle - If You Stare at Me in the Light I will Melt into a Puddle - refers to the legend of Asharys, translucent nocturnal water creatures that were believed to melt if exposed to sunlight. Combining research into local folktales and old legends about mythical creatures living in seas, lochs, burns and wells with alternative photographic techniques and site-specific installations, Uisge-Aqua aims at being a creative and visual exploration of the Scottish waterscapes and their mythical heritage.

 

Project Outputs:

The results of the work have been exhibited in the solo exhibition Uisge-Aqua at Upstairs Gallery, in Inverness in 2019.
