Chlamys asperrimus shells, mixed white shells and operculum, sea urchin, coral, bone, cuttlefish and crab claw pieces, linen thread and bookbinders gum on canvas.

Created as a joyful celebration of our precious marine biodiversity, this piece is also a plea for its long-term protection. Collected from the bountiful sandy beaches of Kangaroo Island, these dead shells tell stories about the natural forces that influenced their individual histories. Gathered together, they resonate as one.
