Peninsula Locations

from Adam: (18/08/08) I for one would like to think about using something a little out of the urban this possible? something like :
Albatross colony
the Albatross colony
or tunnel beach is that kind of thing in the ball park?

New Species

from Douglas: (03/09/08)
Recently I read a book about deep sea creatures, by a Dunedin scientist, Peter Batson. It seems that marine biologists can discover new species pretty much any time they want to, but they don't try because the paperwork is a killer. Now, we could go out and discover a new species on the day. Really. And get it called something onedaysculpturii. Then we can let the specimen go. The paperwork won't bother us because it is documentation, which is what we're really producing anyway. The university has a research boat. Probably we won't be able to use it and we'll have to find a coastal species, which is a lot harder. oh well.

paper cup fishing and listening

from Adam (03/09/08)
i was thinking maybe we could make the beach into an instrument...give people a paper cup with a short piece of nylon coming from the base, and a small hook - as in 'hooks n eyes' kinda hook...and then put things around the bach that they could use the cup to listen throw a fishing line in the sea and they could hook onto that and listen, or have a kite they could listen too etc
