An audio-visual study of human links to the ecosystems of two rivers that mark the English-Scottish Border, weaving archive and contemporary footage of those who live, work, and play along their banks. Presented in a former ice house on the north bank of the Tweed, this eight screen installation responds to environmental changes through live sensor feeds.

In partnership with Northumbria University and Northumbrian Water, with support from Creative Scotland.

John Wallace, filmmaker and video artist based in southwest Scotland, explores relationships between people, landscape and concepts of place. His first broadcast documentary When Chapelcross Towers Came Down - a portrait of the community around Scotland’s oldest nuclear power station prior to the demolition of its four landmark cooling towers – won a Royal Television Society Award for ‘Best Single Factual’ in 2007.
