Cryptic Nights | The Same Hillside

Chip Stack, John Wallace.

2nd to 4th March 2017. FREE
CCA, 350 Sauchiehall Street, Glasgow G2 3JD

In this immersive audiovisual exploration of human links to upland ecosystems, viewers are transported to Scotland’s remote resource heartland where three of Scotland’s mightiest rivers, the Annan, Clyde and Tweed, begin.


John Wallace has captured the experiences and memories of those living and working in the area using documentary video, field recordings and interviews. Live environmental sensors will trigger the different audiovisual sequences.

Join us on the 2nd March at 8pm, for an artist talk with project collaborator, scientist Professor Pete Smith who is interested in soils, agriculture, greenhouse gases, climate change, mitigation and impacts, and ecosystem modelling.
