John Farrell is an artist and writer based in Glasgow, Scotland. Traces and Edges is a long-term study of the former Ravenscraig Steelworks and the landscape’s subsequent return to nature. What was once the biggest hot strip mill in Western Europe is now one of the largest contaminated Brownfield sites within Europe. The closure of Ravenscraig signalled the final death toll of heavy industry in Scotland. What does ‘contaminated’ land look like, and what trace of this history remains?
