Referencing an old engraving of the Leith Docks from 1697  ‘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 nine copper square sheets measuring one meter square and display in the foyer of the former State Cinema, Leith as part of the 2018 HiddenDoor Festival.
