Born in Scotland and now based in Glasgow, Mhairi Muir’s work explores the hidden aspects of our environment. From the use of cymatics to reveal hidden patterns on a micro level to exploring hiding places familiar to us all in thick forests, pebble beaches, towns and cities. Mhairi utilises old lenses on new camera bodies to achieve a dreamy, etherial feel to her images.
The exhibition looks at various forms of escapism and how people use it. From the physical action of running away to the simple act of putting on a set of headphones and listening to music or gaming. At one extreme, there is drug use, sex, and self-harm, while at the more creative end, art, music and literature.
