Four Benches

To convert an anonymous or undefined area into
a place, it may be enough to place something in it,
to direct attention to it.

As an invitation to linger, four benches were situated
around the Falkland estate in Fife, each bench inscribed
with a 'one-word poem'. (This is a form invented by Ian
Hamilton Finlay - the poem should have only one word
but the title can be of any length !)

The benches were made by Dave McKeen at his workshop
in Falkland and the letters were carved by Roger Hall.
