The lightness of being on a deserted North Beach

Back on the beach. The tide is but a distant swoooosh, a faintly pulsing thrum that draws you in to listen for its intermittent soothing surges. 451 more words

"Glass Boat ".

This temporary installation was created in between the tides at North Beach in Whitehaven , West Cumbria in Autumn 2016.I collected fragments of glass gathered from the tideline and arranged them within an outline of an old schooner sketched out on the sand.The boat was an old vessel originally constructed in Whitehaven and I wanted to use a material connected with the sea,hence the use of gathered glass.The glass itself came from old bottles which themselves had fragments of text embossed with references to Whitehaven hence reinforcing the links and connections with the subject matter and materials used.The artwork took 5/6 hours to create and photograph and was gone the next day with the glass being reclaimed by the waves .

It’s not because I’ve been travelling (and I have), it’s not because I’ve been busy (though I have), it’s not because I’m rather lazy (yes I am), it’s not even because I’m so mentally exhausted from all the news in the world right now (yes we are). 767 more words
