Patricia Macdonald’s short video piece High Water: Sea-level rise was first shown in a blog commissioned by the National Galleries of Scotland as part of a series of environment-related blogs for the Art and Artists / Features section of their website – based on some of her images held in their collections – for the lead-up to two major UN Conferences: on Climate (COP26 in Glasgow in 2021) and Biodiversity (COP15 in Kunming: Part 1 (virtual) in 2021; Part 2 in August 2022).

This piece may now also be viewed in the online version of the Royal Scottish Academy’s Annual Exhibition 2022 (Online Preview to RSA invitees, via link sent by email, from 5 pm, 20 April 2022; Exhibition open from 23 April 2022).
