Sea water, sea coal, sea salt

In September 2017, during a residency at RCIRYA, I worked on a project that was grounded in my interest in the natural and cultural history of the landscape. The presence of coal splinters and small lumps along Fife’s coastline triggered my attention, which led to investigations into the relations between the North Sea, coal and salt production. The use of coal drastically changed peoples attitude towards nature. What does it mean to us nowadays?
