What gives comfort in hard times?
Alison Johnston chose a piece of wood from a hazel tree to represent home, family, fire and warmth. The bark of the hazel was magnified 200x at the Centre for Biophotonics in Glasgow and data from the image was converted into notes on a musical scale. The audio in the installation is a recording of Alison singing the resulting musical score. Visotors to the installation were asked what gave thm comfort in hard times.
