~ in the fields

Nicole Heidtke and Stefan Baumberger / ~ in the fields was founded in 2005 in Edinburgh.
~ in the fields’ current interests focus on “borrowed time” and memorialisation – initiated by a residency at Highland Hospice.
In collaboration with the poet Ken Cockburn they worked on a book project about handwiting, inscriptions and ink.
ink consists of five colourless clear glass bulbs – each partly filled with blue ink. Illuminated handwritten inscriptions become visible on a spinning armature thanks to the phenomenon of persistence of vision.
