Summary Boyle Family have worked together for more than 30 years producing an art that scrutinises and replicates fragments of reality. Mark Boyle and Joan Hills began making assemblages in the early 1960s. In 1964 they started their life-long project Journey to the Surface of the Earth, recreating randomly-selected parts of the world's cityscapes and landscapes. This unique practice continued as Mark and Joan's children Sebastian and Georgia increasingly worked with them. But Boyle Family's art has also embraced performance, projections and light-shows, data collection and micro-photography. The aim is to embrace all aspects of an ever-changing world and to make us look, hard and long, at this world's endlessly fascinating details. Works by Boyle Family were filmed for this profile at their 2003 retrospective at the Scottish National Gallery of Modern Art, Edinburgh. The interview was shot in early 2005 a few weeks before Mark Boyle died from a heart attack
