Mark Lyken and Emma Dove were artists-in-residence with The Stove Network from October 2014 to May 2015, researching people’s movements to and from Dumfries and Galloway. Using a Black Cab as a mobile studio they travelled around the region and beyond, interviewing people about their relationships to Dumfries and Galloway and filming the valued and significant places that arose in conversation. The final outcome of the Lyken and Dove’s residency was HAME – a film and sound installation specially commissioned to celebrate the opening of The Stove at 100 High St, Dumfries. HAME ran from 2nd – 16th May, extending over two floors and out in to the street. The installation included film, voice, field recording and subtle music interacting in different ways depending on movement through the varying spaces of the installation.
