The Secret Sign was presented at the 'Devils Pulpit' in Finnich Glen, Drymen, near Loch Lomond, Stirlingshire during May, 1998. The stunning natural gorge has entranced generations, with its intense greenness, dramatic geology and colourful history from its druidic origins to its role as a secret covenanters meeting place.
The audience were taken on a walk, wearing hard hats and wading boots, through the dark waters entering a magical landscape, brought alive by an environmental installation with light, sound, projection, fire and specifically created effects. The soundtrack for the event was built out of the natural elements - the play of water on rocks, the shift of wind in trees and gullies, the calls of different birds and animals.
The journey evoked the northern seasons and their equivalent human emotions in a powerful and timeless setting.
