This popular art installation is still open for viewing until December.
The Scottish coastline with its vast sandstone cliffs is the ‘homecoming’ and nesting territory for vast numbers of migratory seabirds. Artist Mary-Ann Orr became concerned about the losses of seabirds during the winter of 2013, and was inspired to produce an installation which featured the plight of our local puffin populations.. This artwork challenges the viewer to consider the potential devastation of the impact of climate change on the habitats of migratory species, and in this case our iconic Puffin.
This artwork will be available to view in the Zoology Building foyer when the building is open until mid December, between 9am - 5pm, Monday - Friday.
This event is part of TechFest in September, and is supported by Homecoming and The Scottish Government.
