Burning Dust

This work shares the history of women’s contribution to the industrial age in Scotland. The materials included reference the volatile landscape of the Ardeer sandhills (Stevenston coastline, Scotland) where the Nobel and ICI Chemical factory was situated, the world’s first dynamite manufacturer. The objects reproduced from family heirlooms reveal the labour-intensive and fatal past of the factory workers, expanding on the roles women have played out with a traditional domestic setting.
