One of my Seascapes will be accompanying a chapter of Moby Dick as part of the Moby Dick Big Read
A cast of 270 people including Tilda Swinton, Simon Callow, Sir David Attenborough, Stephen Fry, Benedict Cumberbatch, as well as community leaders and young people, have created an incredible digital version of Herman Melville’s prophetic masterpiece, which was first published in 1851.
Accompanying each chapter are artworks from artists including Anish Kapoor, Gary Hill, Susan Hiller, Matthew Barney, Mark Wallinger, Gavin Turk et al
The project is being co-curated by Dr Philip Hoare, artist in residence at Plymouth University’s Marine Institute, and Angela Cockayne from Bath Spa University, and is hosted by Peninsula Arts at Plymouth University.
