Sea Heart

We were commissioned by the National Trust and the Climate Coalition to make a piece of work on a NT site, Brancaster Beach, on the theme of the Green Heart.

The sea is in our blood. Most of our evolution was spent in it.

If we lick a cut it still tastes of salt. We too are pulled by the moon.

This piece expresses a love for the processes that sustain us – the constant ebb and flow of the natural world into ourselves.

In it the sea becomes the blood of the heart.

But there is also a note of warning, the incoming tide first fills the heart, then overwhelms it.

If we carry on exploiting her, nature will take us back into our original salty element.

We will undergo a sea-change that won’t be of our choosing.
