Iga Gozdowska

Black Sights

Black Sights documents how the Forth Valley has been both made and unmade by our historic dependence on coal. I visualise the discomfiting traces of the carbon economy: from the vanished abyss of a defunct colliery to the gargantuan power plants - closed and closing - that once turned Carboniferous remains into electric light. Photographs of Cockenzie and Longannet power stations and the capped shafts of Monktonhall superpit present landscapes in transition. This inbetweenness, this becoming-something-else, is unsettling. It is an image of a society caught between the exhausted confidence of heavy industry and our present anxieties about climate change. I want to show ruins without charisma, to evoke our ambivalence about the environmental consequences of having become modern.
