17 October – 14 November, Small Gallery
The film installation Re-adjuster was triggered by Ben Skea’s memory of a chart, seen in childhood, of the geological ages of the planet. Themes of mass extinction or biotic crisis and the crucial role it can play in the evolution of life were reinforced by visits to the two locations that form the basis for the project – Green Loch/Lochan Uaine, Cairngorms and the Volcanic Green Lake, El Golfo, Lanzarote.
Ben Skea was born in Edinburgh and now lives and works in Glasgow, Scotland. He studied Fine Art Printmaking at Glasgow School of Art and Electronic Imaging at Duncan of Jordanstone College of Art, Dundee.
