The work takes the viewer into the perspective of a painting by George Cartlidge (bottom right image), this re-looking at the history of the landscape and how it has changed from when the time of the painting was painted. 
The contraptions made relate to the period of the original painting and bring back findings of the landscape from drawings, surveys, and samples of the land, and the purple heather that is so visible in the original painting, also know as 'ling' forms the basis of sound for the film.
