A sound and light event that brings the Sea Pool to life in its beach huts and the cliffs surrounding the pool.

 

Internationally acclaimed artist Ulf Pedersen’s work, sees a large-scale projection inspired by Bude on the cliff face which, when the water is in, will be reflected into the pool, accompanied by a subtle soundscape.

 

The beach huts will also be transformed with beautiful light colourations, making them into artworks in their own right. Step inside the beach huts to enjoy an intimate live folk gig and a new soundscape inspired by the sea and costal living by Cornish artists Timothy Crowley and Kate Ogley. Plus, community groups create their own Sonic Journeys inspired by the coast.

INTERTIDAL BLUE BY JOSIE PURCELL

Images of natural and found objects have been printed onto cushions using a historic and environment conscious printing process called Cyanotype. Created outside, along the shoreline, Josie’s artwork is in varying shades of blue representing the coastal surroundings. The work explores the concept of the ‘blue gym’ and how blue space environments may positively impact on health and wellbeing. Sit comfortably and enjoy the view.

ESEDHA BY RUTH PURDY

A bench on the south west coast path is wrapped in ‘mirror like’ tin foil and documented by photography over 24 hours. Ruth creates situations, playing with reflective materials to distort and refract light, asking us to look again at our surroundings.
