If you’d like to put your installation into a shop window in Horsham find where you’d like to put it – and have a chat with the shop owner to make sure they are happy.
To avoid clashing art installations, once you’ve agreed with a shop or identified a public structure/location please let us know by emailing – cort@SussexGreenLiving.co.uk so we can confirm no one else has ‘reserved’ that shop or location and make sure it’s reserved for you.
Then, once you have ocean bombed/got your installation in place please email cort@SussexGreenLiving.co.uk with details of the location, date installed and send us your best photo of your ocean art and community message. We will then share it on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram. We will use the hashtag of #OceanBombed and hopefully your messages will go viral and help people to deplasticise their lives and at least make small steps in the right direction.
We now have 19 community eco ocean art installations in Billingshurst, West Sussex, Horsham and outlying villages. Rather than remove these beautiful pieces of art from their respective shops we have decided to leave them in the shops (subject to permission from the shops) and design an art trail to highlight all the art and the hosting shops.
This trail will be displayed at the Share, Care and Repair Fair along with a stunning piece of ocean art made by the art ambassadors from The Weald School.
The Weald art is a modern piece using unwanted plastic materials, it reflects coral bleaching (main causes being hotter seas due to global warming and chemicals in sunscreen – Green People Organic are working with us to communicate the problems and solutions of sunscreen).
After the Weald art has been displayed at the Share, Care and Repair Fair, it will be exhibited in the Living Room in Swan Walk along with the art trail poster until the end of July. Then along with some of the other art, there will be a display at the Viridor/WSCC recycling facility at Ford and the Biffa education room in Warnham there afterwards. Many thanks to West Sussex County Council & West Sussex recycles.
