Salmon Trails art, South Shields

Art Installations

A new art installation has suddenly appeared at Littlehaven Beach, South Shields mingling with “the weebles”. These works of art are in the form of three large cubes and take their inspiration from the salmon trails marking out the life of the fish as it returns to the River Tyne and makes it’s way along the the River North Tyne towards Kielder Water. You can read more about the installations, which form part of the Mouth of the Tyne Festival, here.

This cube is inspired by the changing colours of the salmon and it is already causing thought provoking moments for visitors. There are ten cubes in all along the River Tyne.

Camera details; Pentax K100D, 28mm lens, 1/125 second, f13, iso 200

  2. Don’t you just love interactive art installations? I’d be flipping those panels too, just like the kids! 😉

  3. I often think that the most interesting photos bloggers can post are the contemporary art works that contribute to the vitality of their city.
