‘Sea Roads are dissolving paths whose passage leaves no trace beyond a wake, a brief turbulence astern. They survive as convention, tradition, as a sequence of coordinates, as a series of way marks, as dotted lines on charts, and as stories and songs.’ Robert Macfarlane, The Old Ways: A Journey on Foot

Interested in the idea that the sea erases all the traverses made within it, whilst land retains them, Rosy creates an installation around the invisibility and usage of the sea road, making a work that is at times itself made invisible by the tide. Taken by the high seas Oct16.
