Times: Timed entry slots each night from 7.45pm (sundown 7.15pm)

A sound and light event that brings the Sea Pool to life in its beach huts and the cliffs surrounding the pool. From intimate beach hut folk gigs to large scale outdoor artworks.

 

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

 

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 from local Sea Shanty singers Bencoolen Wreckers and Swirl, a new interactive and generative sound installation by Cornish artists Timothy Crowley and Kate Ogley, created in response to the location and recorded experiences of those living in Bude and North Cornwall. See the Worry Walk film by local youth group Blend and experience Sonic Journeys created by another community group Bude Beats with local musician James Dixon.

Plus, see how natural sounds can affect your mood with University of Exeter's Ocean 404.

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.

(Esedha means take a seat in Cornish)

WORRY BENCH BY BLEND YOUTH COLLECTIVE

Community group, Blend Youth Collective, did a charity walk earlier this year, the Worry Walk, which will be shown in one of the Beach Huts at the Sea Pool as part of Reflect. They also bring the Worry Walk to a bench on Summerleaze Downs for members of the public to share their worries in the same way, writing them on slates to be washed away.
