Referencing an old map of the Leith Docks dating to 1870 ‘Ghost Lines’ was a site specific drawing created using experimental processes on copper sheeting. The drawing marks were created using substances that caused weathering and patination on the surface of the metal. Objects were dipped into the various substances and left to do the magic.
Constructed from one thousand nine hundred and forty-six tiny copper squares, each was individual cut and then sewn together using copper wire to form a two meter square net. The work was exhibited as part of the 2018 HiddenDoor Festival.
