  3. Emily Speed's Human Castle was commissioned for Edinburgh Art Festival 2012 and was performed in West Princes Street Gardens. This film by Daniel Warren documents that performance.

    Emily Speed’s work explores the complex relationship between architecture and the human. Through her wide ranging practise, she considers architecture not as an isolated built form but rather as a space to be inhabited, a container for human experience and memory. Speed often wears her work, creating fragile cardboard constructions, at once protecting and exposing the artist. In Human Castle, Speed worked for the first time with performers.

    The motto for Edinburgh’s Royal Military Tattoo – Castellum est urbs (the fortress is the city) – sees city and castle as one in the same. In situating her commission at the heart of the city that is overseen by it's iconic castle, Speed’s work continues her exploration of architecture as a protective layer which surrounds us and shapes us in equal measure.
