Quest for a Landscape of Science
Explore the influence of the landscape on the world famous scientist, James Clerk Maxwell and look at the illustration of scientific theory in a designed landscape at the Crawick Multiverse.
We would like to invite you to join us for a vibrant, stimulating, inspiring day in Dumfries and Galloway’s remarkable landscapes of science. With discussion, debate, walking, musical performance and conversations on science and art.
Joined by internationally renowned musician, Wendy Stewart, we will imagine how this beautiful landscape may have inspired his discoveries. Wendy’s work is strongly influenced by both her surrounding landscape and the theories of Clerk Maxwell. Owner of Glenlair, Duncan Ferguson will take us on a walk around the landscape and farm helping us imagine how it was run in Maxwell’s day and what it was like to grow up here as a boy.
From there will will head north to Sanquhar to explore the spectacular Crawick Multiverse. The Crawick Multiverse is a remarkable Artland by famous land artist and visionary Charles Jencks who was influenced by current theories about cosmology and the multiverse. Artist Jan Hogarth and musician Wendy Stewart will continue the discussion and debate about landscape, art and science.
