Thestra.

 

The Thestra project delves into geological history and the notion of a lost land called that existed in the Iapetus Ocean, which closed 400 million years ago as continents moved. Thestra was separate from other civilizations and had the freedom to evolve its geology independently. Thestra remains part of the Earth’s landmass, but its location is unknown.

 

The project aims to establish a human connection with this forgotten land by presenting an archive of fragmented replica pieces of Thestra, represented by the four wearable sculptures. The sculptures invite the audience to physically interact with this geological anomaly.

 

This project has been supported by a South of Scotland Visual Artist and Craft Maker Award, funded by Creative Scotland, Live Borders and Dumfries & Galloway Council.
