Being becalmed instils in our minds the notion of being adrift at sea: a situation that can be frightening, claustrophobic or even serene depending on the circumstances and the individual.

Members of the writers’ group at Catch 23 created pieces of poetry and prose based on the sea, which have been compiled to creat a ship’s log of scenarios, stories and poems at the same time an occupational therapy group from Ospadal nan Eilean made video pieces using the sea as an inspiration.

The result is Becalmed; an installation combining text and video from these individual view points.
