(n) the movement of magma by flow into solid rock, the body of igneous rock originating from this, or an unwanted appearance or interruption.

The contradictions of 'landscape' and the preservation of what we see as historical, aesthetic or natural and the uses we have historically put it through, especially here in Scotland, are issues which in today's current political and environmental landscape grow ever more pressing.

From the introduction of the grazing sheep to the relentless march of pylon across carefully managed grouse moors - we are constantly both the the carfetaker and the plunderer of this natural habitat. From the felling of oak trees to fire the smelting furnaces of the industrial revolution, and to the replanting of the spruce and larch to enrich the next generation, the landscape is a residue of contradictions and a testament to mankind's igenuity, endeavour and ignorance.

And as human time frames accelerate towards some inconceivable conclusion, geological time like the half life of the uranium spoils we plunge into the earth's core, stretches out indefinately in epochs of an almost alien or omnipotent magnitude.

'Intrusion' explores inconsistencies of time and space, particularly the dichotomy of Nuclear Fusion and Fission, the release of energy through the joining of forces and through the splitting of forces respectively. This alchemy is an ongoing process of investigation thrioughout my work dillineating the dichotomy two diachotomic areas.

Fission: the bunker, the control room - an impersonal mechanised space, the interiors of Torness Nuclear Power Station, its dials, levers and the light green irradescent glow of radiation and thermal reactors, throbbing and humming away relentlessly - industry, technology and science - the expansive, the unrestrained, the progressive, inquisitive human spirit, the laboratorial Icarus who knows no limits or bounds. Fusion: the landscape, the diversity of natural elements and life-forms - the constrained and restrained - a wallpaper of runes and geological rifts, the essence of mutual symbiosis of harmonies and universal order, the territory of shamen and spirit, the artists as conduit and catalyst of ecology and vision.

Whether pro nuclear or pro wind, commenting on the micro or the macrocosm, land reform or land reclamation, we are intruders into the predictability and polarity of the current 'green' debate as well as litmus on the recent land reform legislation for Scotland.
