The Royal Scottish Academy 186th Annual exhibition was arranged around the theme of the artists studio. organised by Doug Cocker and James Castle a number of artists, both from within and outside the RSA, were invited to present work along side RSA academicians. Two works were presented by Aeneas Wilder. The first was a cylindrical structure set in the sculpture court and complimenting the aesthetic of William Playfair's architecture. The structure consisted of approximately 6000 short lengths of Eucalyptus

The second installation, Untitled # 160 was a horizontal cylinder spanning the stairwell space leading up to the sculpture court. The structure collapsed some 90 minutes before the opening of the exhibition and was seen by only a few people. Security cameras recorded footage of the work collapsing and this will be transferred to a compatible format at some future date.
