22. Ways of Being Seen

Description: Ways of being seen explores landscapes held in tension by the 100ft monument to the First Duke of Sutherland in the Northeast Highlands of Scotland. The monument commemorates a man who presided over one of the most contested Highland Clearances of the nineteenth century, as populations were forcibly displaced to make way for sheep farming and new infrastructures were inscribed across the landscape. Employing mappings, historic documents, and model making, this research explores intersecting narratives of settlement and displacement, ownership and labour, transportation and tourism, materiality and monumentality.

This project is ongoing. Do get in touch for more details.
