The Red Shed art installation at BBC Scotland

The Red Shed was a regular garden shed installed in the middle of BBC Scotland's offices at Pacific Quay. Placed there by the interior designers Graven Images the red shed was designed to be an island amongst the black and grey rows of desks and chairs.

In a collaboration between BBC Scotland and Glasgow School of Art, six artists were invited to use it as a space for art for one week each. The videos have been produced and directed by staff members in the BBC.
