Sea-change art exhibition graces the Sea Point Promenade


Cape Town - A new art exhibition, Sea-Change, on the Sea Point Promenade in Cape Town aims to tell the story of the birth of humanity, and the ancient relationship we all have with the sea.



The Sea-Change Exhibition is a multi-media project of large format photographs along the sea wall on the Sea Point promenade tells the story of the evolutionary relationship all humans have with the ocean. In partnership with Wavescape, Pick ‘n Pay, WWF-SASSI, ART54 and the Western Cape Government, the exhibition will be gracing Cape Town and her visitors from December 2014 to April 2015.



The founders of Sea-Change, Ross Frylinck and Craig Foster, decided to have the exhibition in South Africa because, Frylinck and Foster have been swimming and free diving in the kelp forests around Cape Town for many years. Foster says that they've been attempting to re-encounter nature as our ancestors did.

He says, "We have learnt to track underwater, we have found new species and behaviours, and we have had encounters with wild animals that we once thought was impossible. We have also learnt how the cold, nutrient-rich sea water positively affects our bodies and our minds."



Frylinck suggests the best time to dive is in the early morning and late afternoon, when the sun is low in the sky. He says, "Swimming and diving in the golden light that reflects through the ocean at these times can make you feel like an ‘oceanaut’ floating through an alien world. It's wonderfully hypnotic."

The artists believe that it is because of these experiences they've had that they are eager to share photos, videos and stories to inspire people to care for the marine heritage, and appreciate our unique human heritage.
