"THE SEA & THE MIRROR" VIDEOS:
This painstakingly handmade
stop-motion silhouette animation for 'Hollow Bones' is where Siiga began.
Locked away in a blackened out room for weeks on end, Richard hand carved this ethereal story from black card, pulled from his imagination then brought to life through a layered glass frame he built from an old coffee table and lamp.
Captured in film during the early stages of writing for The Sea and The Mirror, these dreamy home-made reels of sailing trips amongst layers of weaving porpoises were taken on a trip to the Shiant Islands, known as a small group of enchanted islands located off the north coast of Skye, also where the artwork for the album was created.
