Liverpool River Festival – 2019 – Albert Dock – Liverpool

One of the attractive, but sometimes tricky things about preparing a TrekEarth post is finding interesting additional information. Usually this can be found in abundance on the internet, but sometimes it only works after a long search. It is not always clear which keywords lead to the right publications.

I had already seen that the artwork in today's photos was not yet present in the Albert Dock, Liverpool in 2018.
After a long search, I discovered that the giant fishing nets were part of the Liverpool River Festival 2019 and could only showed for 4 weeks.

The designer of these giant hand-crocheted works (more than three meters high and nearly six meters wide) is the architect Jin Choi. She was inspired for the design by Urchin shells: “Which are enclosed yet light weight, delicate and open. Their textured and permeable surface interacting with light creates openness, while the pattern's mathematical repetition brings visual rhythm and harmony. Against light, the sea urchin's natural form reveals one of the most spectacular patterns found in nature ”
