A touring exhibition.
Ghost gear is the term given to discarded nets, ropes and other objects that float about in the oceans trapping marine life and endangering shipping. Large quantities of this stuff drifts onto the beaches of Shetland. Working with these materials allows me to draw attention to the problems they cause and to explore their potential. My Shetland family and the ghostly remains of the Shetland basket tradition were also an important inspiration for this body of work.
