Starting from January the 28th 2008, the National Maritime Museum of Cornwall will be holding an exhibition called “under the sea”.
I come from Cornwall, so I was pleased when a friend of mine contacted me to make a piece for the exhibition. The brief was to create a 1.3m high rotating set of cubes featuring 4 different types of diver: skin diver, deep sea diver, mermaid and Victorian era diver. Divers come in 3 parts, which when rotated combine with the other divers to create new, strange divers! Our “man in Japan” (me) also sneaked in some great hidden references, which you’ll have to snoop out for yourself.
The exhibition is open in Falmouth, closes at the end of 2008. homepage
