In the beginning was the foam,

Text, performance, kinetic sculpture, prints  2019 -20

This work investigates the mythological, biological and imaginary qualities of sea-foam (and other foams). The text engages with folklore, rising sea levels, oceanic waste, queer shame, latte art, catholicism and bisexual chemicals. 

It was performed alongside kinetic sculptures Bubbly Gargoyles at OSE Microworld  (Margate, AEC, 2019). 

 

It was exhibited in text form at My Eyes Are Wide, Lips Tightly Pressed as part of the Transmediale Festival (Berlin, ZÖNOTÉKA , 2019)

In 2020 the project developed to include a series of prints from photograms of sea foam, alongside a pamphlet of the full text which can be downloaded HERE.
