My Heart Belongs to Hastings

23 September 2012

The launch of Strange Cargo's new public artwork will take place at 12 noon on Sunday 23rd September 2012 on the promenade opposite Warrior Square at St. Leonards in Hastings as part of the 2012 Coastal Currents festival. Thanks to Depth3D for this 3D digital model.

The new interactive artwork has been constructed from reclaimed greenheart groyne timbers from nearby Pevensey Bay and is intended to become a destination for people to leave a lasting and very personal souvenir of their time in Hastings. The artwork will grow as thousands of padlocks are attached to the sculpture's mooring rings by local people and visitors.
