Man’s relationship to the sea. For some it is a natural element of
a habitat, a hope for economical existence, for others it is
a counterpart to everyday life. The sea as a promise of relaxation,
maybe it is a childhood memory.
Taking the form of small souvenirs that could have been created
everywhere at a holiday destination and that serve as memories
I take a look at coastal places in Poland, Lithuania and
Latvia. Because of the economic value they promise due to their
location, these places have been restructured and laid out to
cope with the rising numbers of tourists and do meet the demands
of those looking for recreation. This alteration is caused by
rejuvenation as well as loss, both have an effect on each other, this
is hardly recognized any longer.
