'The Ocean comes to Yorkshire'

I enjoyed this installation at the Himalayan Garden: 'The Ocean comes to Yorkshire' by Subodh Kerkar from Goa in India. Kerkar, an artist, activist and former medical professional, uses shells, pebbles, sand and leaves, often in situ on the seashore, to create ephemeral land art installations. Here, he's used cowri shells which were once employed as currency. The carved poles and suspended disc celebrate the ocean 'as a medium of cultural diffusions' (whatever that means!) Whatever meaning you take from it, I found it visually and photographically interesting.
