Catriona Taylor: SCDS Artist Reports Back on Residency

Today’s seminar was a great success. Catriona Taylor gave us a fascinating talk on the results of her time as the Scottish Centre of Diaspora Studies’ artist in residence. This included two short films entitled ‘Am I an Immigrant?’ and ‘Flow’ which both looked at personal, and wider, interpretations of diasporic terminology.The final piece that Catriona showed us was a quilt made up of images, stories and material which represented ‘home’ to migrants currently living in Scotland.
