After having visited Aberdeenshire and the Barn for the first time in 2013, John Newling returned for an artist's residency that started in 2016.

For the last year he has been writing short letters to Nature. The ‘Dear Nature’ letters are reflections and questions about the state of Newling’s relationship with Nature. Can one partner really make amends for such unreasonable behaviour? Can an irretrievable breakdown be avoided? What is the postal address for Nature anyway? All will be revealed as Newling constructs these letters as hand written, embroidered and printed texts.
