Beachfinds Whiteparkbay

September 9, 2013

Took a trip up to Whitepark Bay and Ballintoy harbour on the North Antrim Coast. The scenery is spectacular – one if the joys of living in Northern Ireland. Collecting wise what was interesting was the most common material was fishing textile material. I found lots of fishing line in a variety of colours, as well as rope from nets and boats. Very little other material – no driftwood of note, little other human related debris, not a lot if shells. The textiles are very interesting- I think I’ll return to gather more. I’d like to do a set of works using these textiles relating specifically to that place. The fishing materials really embody the human link to the area and were such a strong visual feature- very inspiring.
