Confusing shadow with substance is a collaborative project exploring aspects of Shetland’s relationship with the sea and the past, and focusing on Stenness, one of the many once thriving fishing stations around Shetland’s coastline.

We are investigating traces – tangible and intangible – of a fishing station where hundreds of men worked and lived for the summer months during the 18th & 19th centuries.
