Destructive Beauty

Part 2 Project 2016

Leaning on Helgoland’s history as a home to ship-wreckers, this project proposes a community sustained by the act of wrecking. In a similar vein to the destructive beauty of Homer’s Sirens – who project their beautiful voices in order to cause shipwrecks - the community employs the techniques of anamorphic projection to create an illusion with the deliberate intention of luring ships onto the rocky tidal flats which surround the island.
