Nicky Bird investigates the contemporary relevance of found photographs, and the hidden histories of specific sites, investigating how they remain resonant. She incorporates new photography with oral histories and genealogy by collaborating with people who have a significant connection to the site, archive or artefact.

Heritage Site is an art and archaeology project working with the Five Sisters shale bings in West Calder and a house that is buried beneath. It brings together artists, heritage visualisation archaeologists and local community members to create new ways of imaging what lies underground in both practical and metaphorical senses.
