Works · Windmills of Innerliethen

Filmed at the Bowbeat windfarm, this project sought to explore the awareness and presence of a windfarm within the local Scottish Borders community of Innerliethen. Featuring the journey to and experience of being among the wind turbines, the films were then shown on an ongoing loop in an empty shop on Innerleithen high street. The film aimed to be agnostic about the political issues surrounding windfarms, instead giving an experience of sensory immersion in the windfarm site itself. It uses surround-sound recordings of the site alongside an immersive 3 screen projection within the shop.

This work was produced during a period of collaborative practice with the artist Alexander Hamilton. You can see the 'Windmills of Innerleithen' website here, which contains further documentation and an essay by Iliyana Nedkova.
