The images on these screen reflect the history and topography of this coastal town. Each screen is made up of three panels and are 4m x 2m (13' x 6.5'). The ceramic images are printed on both the inside and outside of the laminate, enabling them to light up at night.
The goal of this project was to convert a small triangular area adjacent to the sea front into a public space and venue for a range of events and performances in an outdoor setting. The panels also have a wind breaking function.
The use of this special ceramic to enable these panels to light up at night, is groundbreaking. The project was greatly admired by the local community. The purpose of this work, like much public realm work, is to help create a welcoming gathering place.

[ manifesto ]
Art matters. Attention to the details of our environment leads to love of place, which brings us to take responsibility for the spaces where we live and work. And by extension, the people with whom we live and work. And by extension, to our local communities, our cities, our nations, and our world.
We champion the role of artists in our society. We need artists to provide us with inspiration, creativity, and imagination, and to help us envision a better world.
Architects and designers know that remarkable design can change everything. They connect the dots across disciplines, collaborating with artists to make the world a more beautiful place. They are the ultimate patrons of the arts.
In the process, design professionals promote imagination and creativity, and through their commissions, make original art integral to and accessible in people's lives.
Art in our public and private spaces helps us fight ordinary buildings, ordinary streets, ordinary cities. We celebrate the extraordinary.
The architecture of our buildings and the design of our interiors affect our happiness and well-being. Each of us deserves a daily dose of inspiration.
