Date: Friday 31st Oct.   2-5pm
Location: Shui Hau beach, Lantau
Activity: Collecting colours/waste
liina klauss is supporting Plastic Free Seas' swim challenge with an art installation: liina will be painting a huge stream of colours made entirely from waste washed ashore. Please come and join: you can help collect colours of waste, coordinate the hues and shades or directly help laying out the art work. Because of the huge dimensions of the art work we will continue and complete the installation on Saturday 1st Nov. 

Date: Saturday 1st Nov.  9am-2pm
Location: Shui Hau beach, Lantau
Waste-to-Art Installation: 9am-12pm / Photo shoot: 12-1pm / Clean-up: 1-2pm
On Saturday we will complete the installation and take pictures: please help spread the pictures on social networks so as many people as possible will get in contact with this sad reality! On Shui Hau and many of Hong Kong's beaches, we need as many helping hands as possible to clean up.

Plastic Free Seas swim challenge will have Bruce Pye and his Coach Olivier Baillet swimming 75km around Lantau Island. On Saturday 1st, their fouth day swimming, they will arrive on Shui Hau beach. Don't miss it!

mind your head

'mind your head' is my workshop contribution to imagine peace festival 2014 on lantau island, hongkong. we let ourselves be inspired by the extravaganza of nature and create our own head-piece made from the beauty that surrounds us: lush leaves, green grass, fresh fruit and flowers. and off we go to find all of these adornments on our walk along the beach and through the beautiful wetlands of pui o. apart from natural objects we find bottle caps, fishing nets and a lot of broken down pieces of plastic. we take our findings and turn them into bouquets on each other's heads, just like children adorn each other. it is an act of giving and receiving. by adorning our heads with beauty of the natural world and the throw-aways of the human world, our heads are decorated on the outside. on the inside we start to think: why is there so much rubbish in nature? where does it come from? where does it go to? questions like children ask. honest questions hard to find a simple answer to. 

the process of adorning each other with the treasures of nature honors ourselves and is a deep prayer to the beauty of mother nature herself. let her be healed. and let us heal within her.
