An installation featuring my North Uist photospheres, accompanied by English/Gaelic narration & original musical compositions that I recorded, plus drone footage from Uist Film, is now open at the Taigh Chearsabhagh Museum & Arts Centre. So if you happen to find yourself in the Outer Hebrides in the next few weeks, do have a look. Maybe buy a book :)
But fear not if your travel plans for May/June do not include remote islands off the cost of Scotland, as the installation shall live on in a smaller form as part of the larger archaeology exhibition that runs throughout the whole summer!
I’ve been out flying FPV a few times since I last posted about quads & today I feel as though I have been properly indoctrinated into the hobby – by having to fish one out of tree & finally (after 12 batteries!) properly breaking something!
The exhibition that showcases the 360 pano work I did on North Uist last summer, along with video & audio recording work I’ve done since plus some fab drone footage from Andy Mackinnon at Uist Film, launched last night at the Taigh Chearsabhagh Museum & Arts Centre in Lochmaddy. Unfortunately I was unable to attend the launch due to a prior engagement down in London, but I’ve been told it went down well!
As well as producing a small photo book via epubli that will be offered for sale in the Taigh Chearsabhagh shop (50 copies should be on their way to the shop soon!) we also wanted to be able to offer prints for sale. Mounting & framing gets expensive pretty quickly, especially when the prints aren’t a common dimension, so I decided to give one of Snapmad’s canvas prints a go – especially as they now offer ‘panoramic’ sizes in 2:1, 3:1, 4:1 & 5:2.
A couple of months ago I shot my second gigapixel panorama, inside the Bell Pettigrew museum in St Andrews, for the Skyward exhibition of Kit Martin’s wonderful cyanotypes that opened tonight at the university’s Gateway Galleries. Visitors to the gallery can use a wireless controller to look around & zoom in to the pano.
