The Lines of Attraction
Contour lines are fascinating. First (accidentally) surveyed for on Schiehallion in 1775, this project based from the foot of the mountain, explores lines on maps and mountain and shares with others creative approaches to the invention, history, use and visual/artistic qualities of contour lines. The Lines of Attraction events and creative interventions, will coincide with THE GREAT LINES exhibition in Pitlochry by artist Karen Rann in the spring of 2018.
The project seeks to widen access and connections to Schiehallion and its surrounds and to explore the cultural potential of the mountain, building into the visitor experience a greater sense of place, curiosity and welcome. Karen Rann has partnered with the John Muir Trust and Artlink Central to base an arts project from a yurt on the public route to the mountain for an intensive few days which will see the project seek to inform and build inclusion and access to culture, arts and mountain for visitors. Karen and the engagement artists including participant groups of disabled artists, aim to develop and engender greater understanding of the opportunities and barriers to engagement in the outdoors, in exploring the natural heritage and of making work in natural landscapes.
