The creative rationale behind this project came from an arts residency in Iceland in 2022, when Dr Ruth McDermott travelled to the volcano (the black) and glacier (the white) areas. Using her expertise as a light artist and she will use light sources and textured textile (worked with heat and pressure to create the necessary patterns) to create a series of large scale screens and three dimensional works suspended works reflecting her experience of these landforms.
