Open Studio Day…
The last leg! Setting up took all day in the end. We turned the basement room into an exhibition space. I put up a display of maps showing which walks we went on and a selection of my microscope photographs of some of the specimens found in each place.
Joseph set up a sound system with a continuous run of the various sounds he has been recording around Shetland in the basement space and headphone sets with iPods upstairs, where I set up the microscope for people to play with. It proved to be very popular!
The opening was well attended from 4 until 8. Familiar faces turned up and we met loads of new people too, so all in all it was a lovely, successful event. We are both very happy!
