The title for this piece is:
‘HOOKED AND NOT GOING ANYWHERE’
Setting up the piece was altogether a pleasant experience.
I like how the work sprung up so unexpected. Out of nowhere and sudden, surprising everybody on the beach. Few people openly welcomed and appreciated the novelty. One tourist couple from Milan were very supportive and interested, likewise was another gentleman who kindly recuperated out of the water one of my bags that flew away while another couple was just wacthing from the distance on the other end of the beach. A local fisherman with its kids just passed by trying to ignore what was happening. I am not sure if they were too surprised, intimidated or not interested at all. I was too busy setting up to ask.
I also had to deal with a bit of a problem. When the wind started really picking up it blasted off some of my bags, snapping the string off and making me run all over the beach to chase my bags back for the delight of the restaurant customers across the river who were enjoying a double bill spectacle, quite an entertainment! Another lesson learned though the type of fishing line I used to secure the bags was too thin.
