HALO is an autonomous in energy station, a mobile installation to set up in the public space. It is being built with different phases and versions since 2008, following an ethic in eco-conception in the elaboration of the projects.

Halo is conceived as an immersive and interactive experience, being connected in real time listening to the earth and its oceans. It lies in between a scientific zone and a sensitive art zone, a physical and mental exercise zone, but also a meditation zone.

This project links to the Makrolab, Ant Farm‘s Oceania, Dolphin Embassy Sea Craft (1976), as well as Arts Catalyst‘s recent project on research stations in the Arctic, amongst others.

ecoartscotland is a resource focused on art and ecology for artists, curators, critics, commissioners as well as scientists and policy makers. It includes ecoartscotland papers, a mix of discussions of works by artists and critical theoretical texts, and serves as a curatorial platform.

It has been established by Chris Fremantle, producer and research associate with On The Edge ResearchGray’s School of Art, The Robert Gordon University. Fremantle is a member of a number of international networks of artists, curators and others focused on art and ecology.
