Long Shore Drift draws together past, present and future landscapes to illuminate the natural forces at work along the Suffolk coast, highlighting the rapid environmental transformation predicted in the next fifty years.
Long Shore Drift is a response to the immediate and historical issue of land loss through geological transition and sea flooding, and the potential for the ecological restoration of an endangered habitat.
Working in partnership with The National Trust, Red Earth will create a cycle of site-specific installations, performance events and specialist walks interpreting the environmental changes taking place at Dunwich.
The public were invited to explore the ecology, archaeology, geology and future of the Suffolk coast through direct creative participation: greenwood installation across the heathland (April - Sept) and live performance at the water’s edge (last weekends in July and September).
Long Shore Drift is part of a body of work exploring coastal transformation and the effects of climate change, including Geograph (2005).
