Commissioned for an event in Glasgow hosted by LUX and LUX Scotland, to celebrate the life and work of Ian White (1971–2013) and to mark the publication of Here Is Information. Mobilise: Selected Writings by Ian White.Found footage of a female biologist mimicking the call of the male Great Grey Owl is counterposed with video of the legs of women as they urinate in various wildernesses. The collision of these activities in landscape points towards an exuberant queer territoriality. This work includes a passage from of I am (for The Birds), the final text in the book Here is Information. Mobilise: Selected Writings by Ian White.
