Edwardian Beach huts

teapot
The most personal apparition is the true story of Bexhill Beach Huts that were destroyed in a storm in 1905. Their contents washing out into the English Channel, never to be seen again. The only surviving possession was a metal plated teapot (featured in the app) which was rescued bobbing about on the shore the next day. A story provided by a Londoner named Alan Clark, whose family holidayed in Bexhill for 2 weeks each & every summer. The teapot has been elevated in the work to symbolised survival and continuity, it appears both virtually in 3D, in the app’s user navigation and for real in the public events. The work aims to create a nostalgia for a lost future.
