Biodegradable Tibetan Prayer flag installation.

Recently we were asked by Ruth Rollason, who is studying a Fine Art Masters Degree at The University of Creative Arts Canterbury, if we could help with an installation she was creating for this years Whitstable Biennale - a bi yearly art event on the Kent coast.

Created on the West Beach Whitstable the installation encouraged the public to handwrite onto our biodegradable film bags using sharpie pens. These were then tied to 'string' on festival poles similar to Tibetan Prayer flags. Designed to reflect the idea that handwriting can embellish our lives where technology can't. The installation by the sea explored disappearing words and the lack of permanence and change they cause.

The installation was viewed as a great success. We were glad to be able to help out with some of our biodegradable (and compostable) bags from our slight seconds bin to ensure any that should escape would not cause damage the local environment. We love the photos - we hope you do too.

Well done Ruth.
