A Guide to the Constellations of the Scottish National Portrait Gallery

David Haslam (Visitor Assistant)


My art practice is concerned with ways in which we may encounter and perceive the world around us. I am also particularly interested in places, not as the subject matter of my artworks but as case studies through which my artworks are manifested. I have spent the summer studying the architecture of the Scottish National Portrait Gallery. I have been considering the star map on the ceiling of the Great Hall in relation to perceptual perspectives. My work on display is the progress of this investigation so far.
