Littoral Art Project

I'm a pushover for any art-geography-landscape collaboration which approaches the environment from a new angle, and with an injection of creativity, and this fits the bill perfectly.
Littoral is an art project by Julia Barton which explores the issue of beach litter. This is something we explore with students when we look at plastic waste in the oceans and the interface with the littoral zone... We also have a trip to the Norfolk coast in the summer term, when we explore what makes it such a special place, and this would fit into our explorations of that area too, along with the search for plastiglomerates....


The project has just produced a guide to Beach Litter, which you should keep an eye out for, as it looks like the classic FSC guides and keys. This is a project worth supporting, and keeping an eye on as it develops.
