I have this scroll book in the current Tides Changing I Changing Tides exhibition with the SSA. Originally planned as a “real” exhibition, it is now to be found in its digital format via the SSA website viewing room

It is my response to the Haar (sea mist) which rolled over Edinburgh in the early days of the Coronavirus lockdown. Walking through the mist was like being enveloped in an unknown world. This feeling was heightened by the strangeness of our situation.

Edinburgh is prone to sea mists. They remind us of our proximity to the sea, and that we have little control over the elements, or anything really.
