Black Watch Deployments are collateral with working in the littoral tidal zones. They point to future threats of higher incoming tides, and are collaborations with the unpredictable and the unknown; with change planned and unplanned; with uncertainties and disasters.

The articulators are body related and portable, and remain only briefly where deployed. They treat the gallery space as active, and use similar unfixed working elements as spatial articulators. Although planned, they accept spontaneity and fluidity. There is improvisation and collaboration in their fleeting mobility. Telescopic rods activate, as well as touch space.

The working components and materials are side-tracked from economical, functional building materials, and are re-usable in future projects or returned to source. Some components refer to new construction in the city rebuild the steel rods, 'chairs' and yellow reinforcing caps. Yellow is used as the colour for safety and hope...

The installation includes 8 photoworks attached to movable panels that record some of the deployments outdoors. This work uses previous strategies of relating given indoor space, with chosen extending spatial situations.
