13.00 pm - break

14.00 pm - DAVID RUSHTON, EDINBURGH. Director, Institute of Local Television. David Rushton was a founding editor of Analytical Art. He subsequently worked as a member of Art & Language from 1972-1975, notably on the Art & Language Indexes. Rushton began producing intricate scale models of art and social incidents in 1965. When he moved to Scotland a decade later he split his time between an analysis of art education and communications, latterly working on policies and legislation affecting a more localised TV in the UK.

15.00 pm - PROFESSOR TIM INGOLD, ABERDEEN. Anthropologist and Chair of Social Anthropology at the University of Aberdeen. Following 25 years at the University of Manchester, Ingold moved in 1999 to Aberdeen, where he established the UK’s newest Department of Anthropology. Ingold has carried out ethnographic fieldwork among Saami and Finnish people in Lapland, and has written on environment, technology and social organisation in the circumpolar North, the role of animals in human society, issues in human ecology, and evolutionary theory in anthropology, biology and history. In his more recent work, he has explored the links between environmental perception and skilled practice. Ingold is currently writing and teaching on issues on the interface between anthropology, archaeology, art and architecture (the ‘4 As’), conceived as ways of exploring the relations between human beings and the environments they inhabit.

16.00 pm - ELIZABETH OGILVIE, FIFE. Artist and Former Lecturer & Honorary Senior Research Fellow, Edinburgh College of Art, The University of Edinburgh. Ogilvie is one of the most significant artists of her generation in Scotland with a compelling vision and a strong track record internationally in realizing projects of scale and critical public engagement. She exhibits widely in the UK and internationally including recent solo shows at P3, London and Contemporary Art Space Osaka [CASO], Japan. Over decades she has held major solo shows at Dundee Contemporary Arts, Arnolfini, Bristol, Fruitmarket, Edinburgh, Mead Gallery Warwick, Talbot Rice Gallery, Edinburgh, C.C.A. Glasgow, Stephen Lacey Gallery, London and Serpentine Gallery, for example.

As environmental artist she creates timeless experiences for public using fusion of art, architecture, science. Water/ice is both medium/subject in experiential installations which aim to expand perception/understanding of how our environment functions.
