Cycle 11 Alt-w Production Award -
~ in the fields

Opened in 1801 the Crinan Canal in Argyll & Bute connects Loch Gilp with the Sound of Jura by providing a much shorter route between the Clyde and the Inner Hebrides than going around the Kintyre peninsula.

Vessels pass through fifteen locks as they navigate through the canal. ~ in the fields will take live data relating to each lock and create a kinetic parametric architectural structure in response, at the mouth of the canal in Crinan.

~ in the fields see this historic piece of civil engineering and design, as a passage and destination – and as a machine. Onboard the Travelling Gallery they will explore this canal machine through maps, technical drawings and charts.

Supported by New Media Scotland's Alt-w Fund with investment from Creative Scotland.
