is a sideshow set in a fictional future where marine life has evolved to be able to consume the discarded plastics of our present world; the plastic has become part of them, and the beachfront and the rockpools are filled with living hybrid chimeras such as plastic chip-fork sea urchins, colourful drink-bottle sea anenomes, seabirds that have bred with yellow plastic ducks, battered lego fish, plastic-bag seaweed and crabs with bodies made of crab buckets...
It's a hook-a-duck stall with a difference – staffed by the down-to-earth characters of Wreckage and Salvage, it is a stall that is made from recycled and salvaged materials – pallet timber, rope from the beach, driftwood and paint blagged from the tip, plastic second-hand market tat and skip-raid plywood.
It has 2 resident and slightly bolshy seagulls – Flotsam and Jetsam, who are large lantern puppets with a difference. The stall features a water-filled rockpool populated with sculptured recycled plastic creatures and plants that. thanks to their part plastic genetic makeup - will glow all day and night long!The Rockpool is proudly supported by Anglian Water.
