Brancaster shows the love for the planet
A local artist has created a piece of sand art in the shape of a heart on the beach at Brancaster as part of the 'Show The Love' campaign on climate change.
Artists, Liz McGowan, Jessica Perry, Antonia Soto and friends created the human heart-shaped sculpture to raise awareness of the things they love but could lose to climate change.
The Norfolk Coast has been affected by a changing climate, with the floods at Brancaster Activity Centre in 2013 highlighted in the recent Forecast Changeable report. It also found that it is likely to see a greater number of floods which are more intense in nature.
This piece expresses a love for the processes that sustain us - the constant ebb and flow of the natural world.
" In it the sea becomes the blood of the heart. But there is also a note of warning, the incoming tide first fills the heart, then overwhelms it. If we carry on exploiting her, nature will take us back into our original salty element. We will undergo a sea-change that won't be of our choosing. "
