Exhibited in Swansea Commisioned by Locws Projects, to create a temporary public art work in Swansea. Inspired by the 19 century ‘Cape Horners’, (sailors that repeatedly made voyages around Cape Horn, on three masted sailing ships to bring copper ore back from Chile). A series of dioramas presented as stereo photographs depict the long journeys and extraordinary sights that sailors experienced as they set sail from Swansea Bay, past Mumbles Head and out beyond the horizon. The dioramas, include artefacts from Swansea’s museums including ‘sailor made’ model ships, historic paintings, and journals, some background scenes and props were specially created.
