On entering the archway, musical and rhythmic stingers will be triggered, representing the majesty and importance of the area, highlighting the impact of humanity on the delicate ecosystems of the Flow Country. Heather Lander will create Do Not Disturb The Permanence of Fragility, a series of sculptural plinths housing microhabitats made of ceramics, ink, paper and paintings, which will be situated under canopies of trees in different locations across the Garden. Her work will focus on the carbon locked in the peat and the sphagnum moss that helps to protect it, highlighting the layering of plant and animal matter which form the peat.
It will also reflect on the unique aspects of the peat bogs and the water that is retained in the ground to help create the specific environment for vegetation to thrive and peat to form.
We hope this work shares the beauty and vastness of the Flow Country, a wondrous world largely unknown to many, including myself, when I began this project. The importance this part of Scotland plays to helping offset the effects of climate change cannot pass unrecognised. We need to protect this land, and we need to let nature play its course. I am thrilled that our artists have spent time in the Flow Country whilst also working with scientists to gain a deeper understanding of these peatlands.
