Alles Gut' is a photographic installation and an audio piece made up of voice notes for Glasgow Open House Arts Festival 2021 as part of the project 'Feeling Blue, Feeling Better'. It is a window into the personal conversations between two best friends, between Glasgow and Berlin, between heartache, fear, motivation and celebration. This installation is a thank you to the friend who is rarely present in person but continues to pull one out of the deep end.

Rachel's practice is an ever-changing conversation with herself and what bothers her, this could be angst towards those around her, social media or treading through heartache. Fully formed secrets are desperately processed into audio and visual confessions - never exposing herself completely - in an attempt to step towards acceptance.

"The Sixty Steps, located in the heart of the west end of Glasgow, was one of prominent Glasgow architect Alexander ‘Greek’ Thomson’s last creations and is in daily use by the public today.   The Sixty Steps Preservation Trust is a charitable organisation dedicated to raising awareness of this seminal part of Glasgow's heritage with a view to a full restoration of the Sixty Steps to their former glory.  With the dedication of our volunteers, community, committee members and partners we strive to secure the support needed to preserve this important piece of Thomson’s architectural legacy as part of the local community and to bring the past, present and future together." Quoted from the Sixty Steps website.
