Commissioned for the Look Again Visual Arts and Design Festival in Aberdeen, #blueskythinker a series of landscapes around Albert the Prince Consort’s statue inspirited by his Presidential speech to the British Association of Advanced Science in 1859 at the nearby Music Hall.

5,000 blue and white surveying flags, an autocue film of his speech projected in the library media room, the reinstatement of the standard lamps outside and illumination of the Library facade, a public call to post images via #blueskythinker and a public talk about clouds with David Shearing.
