ALDEBURGH BEACH

Helena Burton

This was a residency in the top room of the Lookout gallery, in which Helena Burton discussed creativity with the public - who were invited up an outside spiralling staircase to meet and talk with her. During her stay Helena regularly photographed and filmed what she could see from the tower and wrote in any free time on

the subject.
