Dispersed accounts is a recreation of the Atlas Engineering sign attached to their office building, once a home of the Clarke family, that was situated on a knoll on what is now known as Clarke’s Point.

Constructed of copper mesh, its lettering is embroidered with reclaimed woollen yarn and string made from shredded WWII military uniforms, referencing human presence at, and historic usage of, the site – wool shipments, modification of passenger craft into armed troopships, and repairs to warships.

Its position suggests having being windblown from its original site – surviving as a fragile, weathered skeleton of an industrial past.
