More details here

The forms that make up the sculpture are based on sea fastenings used in local industry to secure loads to boats. These artefacts, reminiscent of letterpress blocks, have been translated into linear motifs and are presented here as a possible visual language inspired by Shetland dialect, semaphore and runic forms. Details of the surrounding landscape are mirrored in the voids and lines of the structure, which create windows through which to consider Da Street anew.
