Settlement at Heysham Head

Settlement at Heysham Head

The thought-provoking Settlement started it's journey at Heysham Head and now moves to Birkrigg Stone Circle. See it !

Details

Settlement is a brand new temporary work by British sculptor and environmental artist Rob Mulholland, one of five new artworks taking place around Morecambe Bay brought to you by the Morecambe Bay Partnership a small charity doing big things!

The sculptures, a series of mirrored dwellings, invite viewers to consider human settlers’ influence on Morecambe Bay. Six mirrored figures reflect upon the idea of sites of human settlement, reminding the viewer of the generations working the land and the sea in centuries gone by. The ambiguity of the mirrored forms and utilisation of unconventional materials will enhance the visual experiences and allow the viewers to see the environment in a new and exciting way, literally reflecting the landscapes they see around them. The landscape will alter and distort, appearing and disappearing as the viewer passes, a vestige or trace of the past, a reminder of those who have walked these places before.
