Shoal | an art project in reaction to Overfishing
Shoal was created in reaction to Overfishing. Concerned by the statistics of over harvesting fish stocks I set about working to raise awareness of the problem in my own way. Via Facebook I brought together a team of volunteers to take part in a participatory art project. Participants who responded to the online call collected cans, gathered in Dublin and took part in workshops working alongside her to create 150 of these unique metal fish.
The finished installation – Shoal - was unveiled at The Ark, Cultural Centre for Children as part of Awakening Curiosity an interactive art exhibition, funded by Dublin City of Science 2012.
