  • Eleanor McCullough

    Interdisciplinary Residency May 2018

    Printmaking – Solo Printmaking Place during Interdisciplinary Residency, UK

    At the heart of McCullough’s practice lies the problematic of ‘originality’ and the status of the copy in our image-saturated culture of excess. She engages with a variety of media including printmaking, casting, and digital media to challenge the ‘problem’ of the copy-as-a-work-of-art, prove the creative potential of multiplicity, and propose the inadequacy of the dominant discourse of originality. Since graduating, she is a studio holder with WASPS in Edinburgh funded by the Artists’ Collecting Society residency award. She is a member of Edinburgh Sculpture Workshop and Edinburgh Printmakers.

  • Nick Cole-Hamilton

    Interdisciplinary Residency May 2018

    Linear and non-linear audio design, UK

    Cole-Hamilton is a recent graduate with distinction of a Sound Design MSc at Edinburgh University. Although this was an audio focused masters he also explored and experimented with game development, and video content creation, not shying away from the visual arts. Cole-Hamilton grew up in a coastal village in Fife. This instilled a love for the wild, craggy coastlines and rolling farmlands of the region, and he believes this is something which comes through in his audio work. Crashing waves, crying gulls and whistling winds combine with the dry crackling leaves under foot and fires in the hearth.
