ALDEBURGH BEACH

The Awe of the Other

Pauline Bickerton, Mat Bickerton and Thomas Garnon

Suffolk artist Pauline Bickerton (in collaboration with Matthew Bickerton and Thomas Garnon) made two absolutely gigantic chairs in which to sit facing Aldeburgh beach and the sea.  People of all ages were invited to sit in the chairs, contemplate life, the sea - the awe of the other! The chairs were fitted with headphones so participants could exchange thoughts with each other.  The thoughts and voices of participants were recorded into this bakelit radio, and piped throughout the Lookout.
