About the artwork

Large-scale installation on the River Tawe, Swansea. Temporary Public Artwork commissioned by Locws International.

Swansea Buoys Reconnect is a large (70 x 60 metre) public artwork made of colourful water buoys to reflect Swansea’s rich maritime history.

Through a series of ‘Light Drawing’ workshops with the communities of St Thomas, Grenfell Park and Port Tennant as part of the SA1 Swansea Waterfront Public Art Programme, Tine explored the history and memories of the local community and developed the inspiration for a bold and colourful sculpture that floats in the River Tawe by the Sail Bridge.
