    Earthship Fife : Paula Cowie

    Our second ‘film as research’ features Paula Cowie of Sustainable Initiatives Scotland introducing the ‘rammed tyre’ Earthship Fife as it nears completion. Photographs of the finished building have been added. The ‘film as research’ is part of the Changing Places exhibition at the Museum of Model Art held during the 2021 Sanquhar Arts Festival. ‘Artitect’ in Residence, Derrie Pearson explored the possibilities of locally sourced and reclaimed materials to be used in the building of ‘huts’. This follows legislation in 2014 to encourage the hutting community. The legislation builds on the Carbeth experience that grew following the First World War to 170 huts in the 1950s.
