Mirrored Figures Reflect the Natural Landscape and Cultural Heritage of Morecambe Bay

October 1, 2018

Rob Mulholland (previously) was recently commissioned by the Morecambe Bay Partnership to create a site-specific installation that would connect with the history of the northwest England site. The British sculptor and environmental artist created a series of six mirrored figures and two dwellings that represent the communities that once settled on the land. Visitors to the public project can view themselves reflected in the shapes of the area’s past, while also getting a new perspective on the surrounding hills and glistening sea. The project is a part of the Headlands to Headspace initiative, which is working to protect Morecambe Bay’s natural habitats such as salt marshes, sand dunes, coastal limestone grasslands, and woodland. You can see more of Mulholland’s mirrored figures on his website and Instagram. (via Colossal Submissions)
