Wilder Being: Art, Archaeology & Environment

Activity: Participating in or organising an eventParticipation in workshop, seminar, course


The Sanday art/archaeology workshop on the shore at Pool was an innovative form of experience, bringing together archaeologists, artists, environmental scientists and community for a field workshop at this littoral locale. The Sanday workshop participants observed and recorded artefacts and materials – both ancient and modern – and used archaeological techniques of 3-D laser scanning, GPS survey, artefacts recording combined with photography, drawing, sculpture and text to explore impressions of place and environment. A film was made by Mark Jenkins based on the woprkshop and folklore. The project culminated in an exhibition at the Pier Atrs Centre, Stromness where the workshop as shared, film screened and Orkney College art students work displayed.
