WHAT DO YOU SEE WHEN YOU SEE THE SEA?
COTIDAL is an ambitious film project by Devon based artist Tania Kovats. Commissioned by Time and Tide Bell , Kovats' aim is to create a film 24 hours and 50 minutes long - the length of a lunar day - tracking the wave of high tide around the UK. The Appledore Chapter is the first part of this longer film.
Through contributions from local communities alongside segments created by Kovats herself, the film is a meditation on the question "What do you see when you see the sea?". The Appledore Chapter is the first hour of this creative journey. Many local people have taken part in this exciting national film project that is making a record of how we live with the sea on this small island.
Some feedback from the audience:
I especially enjoyed the many combinations of colour, pattern and texture . Thought provoking and inspirational.
So beautiful and mesmerising, thank you. I loved listening to people’s reflections on their connection with the sea.
Wow! What an amazing film! Stirring, beautiful, disturbing. It was full of texture.
