Keith – The sett of the land

Client – Moray HIE

Keith, 2007

Project – Artwork around entrance to new office buildings in Keith.
I created a vertical recessed square, upon which there is a large image of the generic landscape around Keith, and a horizontal square in which words are set in a metal strip. This  poem refers to aspects of the history of Keith. Embedded within the image are the names of people who, over the centuries, have lived here.
