An art installation for the Greenwich Tall Ships Festival. Maps and paper craft techniques were used to bring to life the nautical heritage of Greenwich in a display of floating ships within a theatrical scene of world travel and imaginary creatures from distant lands. The installation was exhibited to the public within a shop window display on Nelson Road neighbouring Greenwich market. Art workshops with local primary school children introduced a range of techniques including: collage, marbling and paper engineering. This resulted in pupils creating characters collaged from geographical magazines (circa 1940) and aeronautical balloons made from maps which contributed to the overall art installation.
The project was commissioned by the Royal Borough of Greenwich and supported through their Arts Community Fund.
