I think that the rocks and stones of the World Beach Project should get some play during this remarkable week of One Love, One Heart, Let's Get Together and Feel All Right. Don't you?
The World Beach Project, an online gallery of art made by all kinds of people, features stones gathered on beaches from around the globe. The project was devised by artist-in-residence Sue Lawty in association with the Victoria & Albert Museum. Building on the experience many of us have of creating patterns on beaches and shorelines, the WB Project combines "the simplicity of pattern-making with the complexities of shape, size, color, tone, composition, similarity and difference." It is open to anybody, anywhere, of any age.
Have a look. It's gorgeous. And if you want to participate at a beach near you, here are the rules. Yah man.
