Talla an t-Sìthein was a night time sound and light installation inspired by the myths and lore of the Gaelic 'Otherworld'. It was set in a very dark remote patch of Scots pine trees.
Opening the miniture door of the Talla during night time hours revealed an inner world bathed in blue light. The audio soundscape was created from a mixture of voice, slowed down birdsong and harp playing itself in the wind.
