Live stream talk.

The exhibition, developed from field studies carried out on the recently formed Icelandic island of Surtsey and the geologically ancient island of Barra in the Outer Hebrides focusses, amongst other things, on the impact of both human and natural forces on the two contrasting islands.

'Surtsey presented an opportunity to encounter a unique landscape that was so young that the impact of man was apparently yet to be felt. However across the lava fields the Anthropocene had already begun to cast its shadow of an uncertain future. Climate change and the unwelcome arrival of plastic flotsam on its shoreline were already features of the struggle for survival'.
