2022 SWELL ARTWORK – THE OCEAN IS A BLANKET PULLED BETWEEN SLEEPERS, Colin Mac
THE OCEAN IS A BLANKET PULLED BETWEEN SLEEPERS is a site specific artwork highlighting the ocean as a connective thread between landmass and people. As the tide approaches and recedes from the shore we feel the inverse push and pull experienced by people across time zones and continents in the same way we might feel a blanket being pulled from either side of a bed providing comfort and connection through constant tension.
