Nana Ollerenshaw: One Day at Tea Bag Bay

One Day at Tea Bag Bay an ocean liner comes to rest, shrinks the sea, pulls the coastline in, changes the topography to some new paradise. This horizontal high rise, chandelier on water, whose lights at night would match the stars, tells dreams. Locals pause to stare, swimmers, paddleboards, cats and skis set out drawn as bees to one gigantic flower. Lighters shuttle clients in to taste the shore, to stop where many have not been before. Land and sea, taken by the other, swap a day at Tea Bag Bay. Nana Ollerenshaw
