Control Tower (2009) - a single screen digital video with stereo sound shown on a seamless and continuous loop. A violent storm coming in from the north Atlantic fills the frame. Gradually a headland appears out of grey sea mist and then disappears again in a constantly repeating cycle. A military watch tower and control station for a major NATO and MoD live bombing range at Cape Wrath is situated high on the headland - looking north west towards an obscured horizon.
Commissioned by Film and Video Umbrella as part of the project, Balnakiel
