Kirsten Millar

I am an artist living and working on the West Coast of Scotland, originally from Dundee, who has recently completed a postgraduate degree in Contemporary Art Practice at Edinburgh College of Art. My work experiments with existing sites, exploring them through archives and field research in an attempt to connect the archaeological and industrial by looking at the varied legacies, tales and manipulations of the environment. I work by embedding myself within sites, connecting with unseen and intangible histories.

These findings are expressed through sound using a mixture of archaeoacoustics, acoustic ecology and archival sound. I extract materials that exist within the sites, playing with layers of time by referencing artefacts found, structures that exist and those yet to be created using prefabricated industrial/scrap materials.
