Two Seas : High Water

 

 

Two Seas : High Water  is a film of the two seas that border the east and west coasts of Britain - the North Sea and the Irish Sea. It was projected onto the High Altar of the Metropolitan Cathedral of Christ The King in Liverpool in a continuous loop throughout its opening hours. The work referenced the use and symbolism of water within many religious faiths.

 

The moving image provided a meditative focus for worshippers and visitors to the cathedral:

The film makes it a living altar.” Canon Anthony O’Brien, Dean of the Metropolitan Cathedral.
