This is Sea explores our personal relationship with the sea and beach. Visual artists will guide the public to make a fun self portrait using beach bounty to bring awareness to the flexibility of sustainable materials and the natural beauty of the ocean on our doorstep.
This is Sea is a free family fun activity, making art with natural materials in the main market public space. Frames, canvas and all materials are provided. Visual artists will guide the public to connect with their thoughts and feelings about the sea and beaches nearby and they will be encouraged to make a self portrait for ‘All to Sea’. The self portraits will be photographed with permission and a slideshow will be created to publish on Midleton arts festival website at a later date. This project will also bring awareness to the beauty and flexibility of natural materials and will provoke discussion on peoples dependence on unsustainable materials as a source of entertainment and creativity.
