    Produced and Directed by Simon Fildes and Katrina McPherson This work was commissioned through the Imagining Natural Scotland project during the Year of Natural Scotland, funded by Creative Scotland and Scottish Natural Heritage. Simon Fildes and Katrina McPherson collaborated with Dr Rob McMorran of the Centre for Mountain Studies at The University of the Highlands and Islands; examining and responding to the issues around the research into the mapping of 'wild land' in Scotland.
    The project aimed to create a work that articulated the borders, zones and differing perceptions of wild land that formed the basis of the research. The artists went to a specific location with 3 dancers at 3 different times of year, where the mapped border between ‘wild land’ and ‘not wild land’ is easily accessible in The Cairngorms near Glen Feshie. A path to Sgorr Goaith winds up through beautiful mature Scots Pine on the Invereshie National Nature Reserve next to the Allt Ruadh and soon opens out in Coire Ruadh.
    Like any psychological or physical transition, these borders between wild and not wild for most people are all about a feeling. The very personal response is the most important thing. The stepping over an invisible threshold where the shoulders relax and you smell the pine in the air, catch a glimpse of a red squirrel, watch wood ants wrestling on sun warmed rock, step over the raptor torn remains of a Ptarmigan, and lie down in the heather and stare at the clouds for a while thinking about nothing in particular. Designating lines on the map are the necessary part of defending that moment for all of us.

  5. the time it takes

    to arrive
    to live
    to make a land
    to find
    to fall
    to settle in
    to work
    to build
    to seize the day
    to journey
    to be happy
    to make a story
    to dance

    to pick up the pieces
    to laugh
    to sing a song
    to love
    to grow
    to bury the dead
    to lose
    to uncover the past
    to walk
    to imagine the future
    to leave
    to return
