A week long cultural exchange in Orkney sponsored by Highland Park responding to The Days Never Seem The Same Exhibition of Gunnie Moberg and Margaret Tait.
There is a connectivity between all things and a reciprocal relationship in nature, between humans and the environment, between what we see and where we find meaning. The randomness of existence.

"... Brittonie Fletcher walk<s> the shoreline... presenting work from a Stills-hosted research residency on Orkney focusing on the work of Gunnie Moberg and Margaret Tait.
Fletcher is probably the most technically experimental artist across both exhibitions. With a focus on the texture of the image, an interest in geology, and a glimpse of the power of the Orkney winds, Fletcher’s diverse works include a hand-applied liquid emulsion print of the marks made by grass in the sand (Signs and Symbols, 2018); ten exquisitely detailed chemograms (Rock Portraits, 2019); and a pair of silver gelatine prints that show the shore grasses sculpted into ridges by the force of the wind (Grasses: North then West, 2018) reminiscent perhaps of Richard Long’s A Line Made By Walking (1967). Her C-print of an unidentified found object, The Disc (2018) is an extraordinary swirling galaxy of tones and textures – copper, bronze, turquoise against a black void of a backdrop. ."
