Ox On Eigg – Isle Land Life. Psychic Experiments and Site Worship is the Ox Art residency at Sweeney’s Bothy, on the Isle of Eigg, selected and hosted by The Bothy Project. Ox Art are collaborative artist duo Annabel Pettigrew and Rob MacPherson.
During our time on Eigg we performed daily psychic experiments using Zenner cards, and read the Tarot. We filmed and captured lots of footage in view to making a film of our time in Eigg, which will be exhibited later in 2016. We explored the island and performed ritualistic respect to the sites we visited.

Isle Land Life
13.00:57 A black hole of the mass of the sun
33.03:18 About to begin
34.01:04 Low 150 miles South-West
30.01:44 Now for ten years
14.03:26 But there’s another kind of Hawking radiation
13.15:06 Fragile from the storm
04.03:35 Smile a certain sadness
28.00:10 Tears must be cried
32.00:52 To forget
31.01:00 Sun is high
03.02:21 And the Loan Piper walks off into the distance
20.00:30 We get so close, near enough to fight
05.02:06 Recognised, if that makes sense
13.06:11 Know the positions of particles
27.05:34 Promise, melt the ice
13.11.:17 But you couldn’t come back to our universe
