To celebrate a phrase fondly used by Edinburgh locals, Collective Matter has worked with artist Mick Peter to create a range of products in praise of folly.

Souvenirs of Calton Hill propose a series of uncommon products that invite visitors to consider Calton Hill through the lens of astronomy, time-keeping, trade, architecture and making.
Collective was established in 1984 and has played a key role in supporting contemporary art in Scotland ever since. Our publications document some of our many projects along the way and our journey to a new kind of city observatory on Calton Hill.
Collective's programme of exhibitions, walks, events and off-site projects present contemporary art in all its diversity. Our artist editions have been produced through some of these projects.
Collective brings people together to look at, think about and produce contemporary art in a new kind of City Observatory.
