Ghost Gear Poppets

A site-specific project for Padstow, UK.

A project conjured in the lead up to the G7 Summit, June 2021 in St. Ives, Cornwall.

Ghost Gear Oracle Head, 2021.  Waste plastic, buoy, rope, net fishing tackle.

Taking inspiration from the Old Ways and traditional West Country magic and witchcraft, making talismans using plastic waste collected from the Seven Bays around North Cornwall.

Journeying through the magestic landscapes of North Cornwall to breathe sentience into the plastic bodies.

Poppets made from Ghost Gear aid our cause through magic.

They are custodian spirits brought ashore with a message,

they know what is occurring in the Ocean deep.

Set free, they journeyed by land and by sea to haunt the G7 summit.

Cycled from Padstow along the Camel Estaury into Bodmin Moor.

Scarlets Well, Bodmin. Cleansed by water from sacred wells and holy springs.  

Lifted to the top of Brown Willy 420m and washed in the midst of Bodmin Moor.
Laid on granite as old as the Earth, to spread the message of the Ocean Deep to the ancestors of old.

Cycling from Bodmin Moor southwards to Looe.
