From Robert Davies photo article of Edinburgh’s seaside communities, Granton, Newhaven and Leith in Volume 2 regarding the Evergreen: A unique Season when you look at the North.This Friday 29 January at Tent Gallery, Robert Davies displays pictures from their photo article on Edinburgh’s seaside communities.

‘we set out to record the switching shoreline of a city, and discovered a landscape in limbo, of stalled developments that had little connection to record and community – a landscape of incomplete visions of the future’.

The picture essay is roofed within the 2nd volume of The Evergreen, amongst fiction, poetry, art and essays, recently relaunched for the first time in 120 years.

The convention is available 5-7pm Friday 29 January 2016, at Tent Gallery, Evolution home.

Photographs from the orifice of the convention ‘STRAVAIG’. From the Scots [to wander, wander, traverse] ‘STRAVAIG’ is an exhibition of product wanderings from all present Art Space and Nature MAFA students.

A selection of pictures and text from the recent convention at Tent Gallery from Art and Biological Architecture collaboration with artist Yulia Koranova and scientist Eric Thorand. The event explored manipulation and evaluations of peoples and microscopic machines.
