Along the Tin Coast
The storms roll in, day by day, week by week, month by month.
I have set myself a task of traveling along the Tin Coast from Nanjulian in the south-east to St Ives in the north-west at sea level where the Cornish miners were prospecting for tin.
I am recording my journey using a number of sketch books and mixed medias, a camera taking images and short videos and small clay slabs for making textural images.
On my journey along the beaches below the cliffs I have to be aware of the tides and changes in weather as at most times I am in a very vulnerable position.
There are many exits that I can take up the cliffs and they have to be checked and recorded before I start each stage of the journey. I have to accept that I cannot travel the whole of this part of the coastline at sea level because of the structure of the sea cliffs but thats all part of the challenge of the project.
