Liverpool (UK) – Scans, Seafarers and Sculptures

Thanks to all those seafarers who are still participating in the Sea is All Around Us project, scanning their souvenir cups received in Melbourne. New destinations of New Jersey, Port Elizabeth, New Delhi, St Petersburg, Laem Chabang and Suva were added this month, taking the project as far as the Northern Hemisphere. I too have been travelling and while in Liverpool (UK) I visited the Liverpool Seafarer’s Centre in Crosby near the Liverpool Docks and was welcomed by CEO John Wilson. We talked about the possibility of extending the Sea is All Around Us project to the Northern Hemisphere and including the seafarers visiting Liverpool Seafarers Centre. Nearby on Crosby Beach is Antony Gormley’s work Another Place which consists of 100 cast iron sculptures of his own body, facing towards the sea.
