The last few days have involved tightly focused collections from the beach in order to make sure that I only select the 12 items that I selected to make my lines from, to enable me to complete the construction of my lines before the ‘tow off’ on Thursday
Commercial items such as rope , prawn boxes, gun cartridges, and domestic items such as bottles and caps . The items are the most commonly washed up and the the ones that I have found methods to simply link them together by piercing, drilling threading and stitching. The unselected litter such as the mounds of tangled rope and random objects will be bagged up and carried to the mainland in the boat. All the litter line and bags are to be picked up n Friday Morning by the Highland Waste Services
As I called a halt to more collections yesterday, I am now turning to testing making lines on the waterand organising where to take photographs from to capture the event. And the all important letting people know the where and when of the day. A rough schedule will be posted today, please pass this information onto anyone you know who is involved. For those following further afield please let people know about the event and support our World Environment Day by commenting on the blog and twitter @LittoralArt. She you tomorrw weather permitting!
