ALL AT SEA  2015

Much of my practice involves looking at the places in which we find ourselves, how we navigate our way through life, and the means we have to relate the journey. 

A Residency at The Fishermen’s Mission, Newlyn UK found me sketching, talking and finding out about tides, charts and other means of navigation from the visiting fishermen and regulars.

I created small artworks on maps and encyclopedias that were then put in bottles and lobbed out to sea by the fishermen I met in the Mission. A message inside this ‘art in a bottle’ asked the finder to get in touch, saying where they found it.

The aim of the project is to put original art pieces out there into the world, using natural forces, not market forces. To exhibit chance.

As yet, none have been found.
