Current Project: CÒIG SGIATHAN | FIVE WINGS

ATLAS ARTS is an itinerant arts organisation based in the Isle of Skye that celebrates and explores the specificity of place within a local, national and international context.

An organisation ‘without walls’, we are uniquely placed to deliver a contemporary arts programme in a dispersed, remote rural setting. ATLAS provides opportunities for artists to extend their practice through commissions, socially engaged projects, exhibitions, cultural exchanges, residencies, workshops, educational programmes and projects that strongly connect communities.

Installed in the Scorrybreac boathouse, Portree, this evolving sound work comprises four discrete channels of sound, each repeating over long durations (between one and two hours) but at variance with one another. It will therefore subtly change over the course of its installation.
