Shelter Project

2001 to 2016

In 2001 I constructed a small, driftwood shelter on the north shore of Lindisfarne. Following its demise I built a more solid stone structure which survived in various forms until 2013 when it was destroyed by a tidal surge which swept the coast. In 2014 I raised funds towards its reconstruction and to develop a range of projects which recorded its history and celebrated and extended its use. During the rebuilding process it suffered further damage as the result of a fire.Whilst the shelter no longer exists, its history is recorded in the form of a virtual museum containing a range of documentation including notebooks, artworks, texts, objects and events.
