The Southend-on-Sea  – Beach Rubbish Project

2016 – 17

I have been collecting rubbish on Southend beaches twice a month for a year while on the TOMA program. The process included documenting the location, weather, date and time in a sketchbook.

The initial art outcomes are documentary films and images of the finds using photographs and scans. The digital prints were created to remind the viewer of scientific microscope images of plankton and minerals.

These works can be seen at the Beecroft Art Gallery, Victoria Avenue
