[Ghost fishing, weaving, re-using ghost nets, Healthy Seas]

The Ghost Urchin is made of 10 panels woven with ghost fishing gear retrieved from The North Sea by Ghost Diving and Healthy Seas. By untangling, unravelling, sorting and cleaning the Ghost nets, this ‘immortal material’ can be prepared for weaving. With each net having a distinct texture, coarseness and colouring, it is possible to express tactile qualities similar to that of a real sea urchin.
