YOUR

DAYDREAM


lost on the beach

Coloured biodegradable helium balloons printed with the text LOST ON THE BEACH feature in "Lost on the Beach", one of the gallery works.

On Saturday 1st July balloons were sent with the same text LOST ON THE BEACH from the Naze Tower by visitors with a message describing their daydream. The tag featured the project website address - www.ifever.org.uk and finders were asked to reply on line where the balloon was found, and post a return message on the website if desired.

This activity accompanied the event of 'Lines of Approach' and the live BBC Radio Essex broadcast of "Steve's Summer Saturday" (2-5pm) from the Naze Tower.
