Traveling round Tiree's beaches, we'd been thinking about the lines formed by water meandering across the sand to reach the sea; how they're altered by natural events and human actions. At Traigh Ghrianal I made a stream of many-coloured stones, flowing from the storm bank into the waves. I used the smallest pebbles at the water's edge so that the incoming tide, gentle on this calm day, would begin to lap them into its own patterns as soon as I laid them down.
