audience participatory and collaborative event on Margate's sea front

Beacon - Documentation

Faint and Beacon are both responses to Margate Mementoes, a project exploring Margate's diverse communities and recent migrants; concepts of audience or spectatorship and the nature of collaborative working methods.

In Beacon (event) the artist sought to explore the nature of identity through creating a participatory work which strove for a moment in time to cut across the multiple divides between artist and audience and more wide spread cultural and social fragmentations. Working with Margate Coastguards, the BA digital media students and staff from Canterbury Christchurch College, The Yacht Club and several residents from Arlington house, Beacon (event) was performed and recorded on a dark windy night on the sea front.
