Sound of the Sea

Sound of the Sea

Personal Work, 2020

This is the man who fell in love with the sea. He folded himself a paper boat using a map he found at the post office and then sailed it out beyond the horizon. He took with him a shell- in the hope that he could capture the sound of the ocean and take it with him wherever he went. He never made it back to land but it was the happiest he’d ever been.
His shell often washes up on beaches around the place and if you hold it up to your ear you can hear the sea.
