The Dark Skies Biosphere Project
The Dark Skies Biosphere Project is an artistic practice residency in Galloway, Scotland, which has Dark Skies Park Status and is aiming to secure Biosphere status by Spring 2012. Dark Skies Park means it is one of the best places in the world to look at the stars due to low levels of light pollution. Biosphere refers to areas of landscape that have a good ecological balance and sustainability.
This residency is linked to the ongoing program of artists’ proposals and events in Dark Skies Park/Biosphere. The selected candidate will work closely with lead artists Mathew Dalziel and Louise Scullion to develop a promotional art/design edition for this fascinating place. The residency gives an artist with an interest in science and arts a wonderful opportunity to work with this diverse and fascinating landscape and to be mentored by Scotland’s most distinctive ecological artists.
