Temporary site-specific work at Salthouse Church, Norfolk.

The church stands on a hill above the north Norfolk coast, having been moved to higher ground following flooding. It has been described as a lighthouse. At one time boys wishing to go to sea were taught in the church and there is a tangible reminder of this in the carved graffiti of ships on the choir stalls. In this work outlines of the ship graffiti and found portrait photographs are etched onto domestic glass vessels.
