31 July - 11 September 2005

Stephen Turner was in residence alone on the derelict searchlight tower of the Shivering Sands Seafort for 36 days from 4 August until 9 September 2005. A time period corresponding to a tour of duty in the fort during WWII.

The photographs on this page show Stephen Turner arriving by boat to the Towers.  

The Seafort Project was an artistic exploration of isolation, investigating how one's experience of time and place changes in isolation, and what creative contemplation means in a twenty first century context. A book dcoumenting the project is available, see publication page for more details.
