Danny Boyle Introduces Pages of the Sea. Up to 32 beaches have portraits marked out in the sand
Film-maker Danny Boyle has extended an invitation to join him in marking 100 years since Armistice and the end of the First World War.
The Pages of the Sea, commissioned by 14-18 NOW. It is being overseen by filmmaker Danny Boyle, marks end of the Great War
The Oscar-winning film-maker and mastermind behind the London 2012 Olympic Games opening ceremony has created the event as an “informal nationwide gesture of remembrance”.
A team of volunteers, including designers, helped Danny create the images on the sand. In this video they are on Folkestone beach where Wilfred Owen was ‘drawn’.
Volunteers drew the images during low-tide to watch the faces washed away when the sea came in.
Poet Carol Ann Duffy wrote a new poem read by individuals, families and communities during the event. She said Danny Boyle conceived a beautiful, poetic artwork that invites people across the UK to participate in a new informal gesture of remembrance on the centenary of Armistice Day
14-18 NOW have a book coming out in April 2019. They tell us inside will be the portraits created for Pages of the Sea. Check out their website https://www.1418now.org.uk/
