Nick Thomas

The exhibition takes the form of a short filmic portrait of the Uists, focusing on the missile testing facility which has been situated on the island since the late ’50s, drawing on research undertaken by Thomas whilst on the islands.

There is also a consideration of the Catholic iconography of the area and its historical role – as devotion and public art – in the initial ideological conflict around the site. Thomas attempts to look at how technological change, religion, landscape and politics might interact with each other in a particular historical moment (or moments).
