“I’ll have to calm down a bit or else I’ll die of happiness” culminated as a week in residency from a group of artists working to respond to the specialist site, Pig Rock Bothy, National Galleries Scotland: Modern One, Edinburgh.

The works explored a number of themes including a key thread of environment(alism) throughout. By breaking the group into separate pairings or individuals this project provided a unique format. Whilst each artist formulated their concept alone, by creating sub-residencies each day new and unlikely contexts formed for works that may not have been realized otherwise. More on Tumblr
