|This beautiful image was found on the internet. |
I don't know who the photographer is.
And now the rest of the world is sharing this dreadful fascination with floods. I've tried not to turn the Japanese experience into some sort of voyeuristic fetish. But when I was sent the link to this film, I finally understood the power of the sea. The images have lodged so strongly in my mind, that last nights walk home from work was full of shadows of rising water.
By the time the installation is put up, something else will be top of the news, but I hope it will bring to mind what we have learnt in the last days and contribute to the campaign to halt climate change.
Flood will be showing at the Chorlton Arts Festival Big Art Walk from 19th - 29th May http://chorltonartsfestival.com/
