One & All

FullSizeRender-63Sounds of Our Shores // Martyn Ware // Soundscape

This brightly painted hut was placed on various beaches in the UK this summer. People were invited to enter and record their memories by the sea. The voices were combined by artist Martyn Ware to create the piece What Does the Sea Say? This hut now marks the entrance to Somerset House’s exhibition One & All. The show serves as a 50 year anniversary for the National Trust’s efforts to help conserve the UK coastline. Entering the exhibition you are confronted with the images and sounds of the sea in a three panel screen.
