The fifth annual Andrew Carnegie Lecture at Edinburgh College of Art (ECA) was delivered by Tacita Dean.

Tacita Charlotte Dean OBE RA (born 1965) is an English visual artist who works primarily in film. She is one of the Young British Artists, was a nominee for the Turner Prize in 1998 and was elected to the Royal Academy of Arts in 2008.

Tacita Dean’s interest in landscape phenomena has taken her around the world; from the unspoilt landscape of Bodmin Moor in England, to the open rangelands of Wyoming in the American West to film a rare solar eclipse. Dean is a champion of photochemical film, yet her wide-ranging practice extends across a multitude of mediums.
