As part of Centre for Creative Practices  I created this work as a response to the collaboration project New Voices of Ireland Series 8. Migrant artists from various countries Nigeria, South Africa, Romania, Pakistan, Greece, Iran and Ireland and from many different disciplines music, painting, performance, sculpture and photography. Collaborations were formed to create new work under the current COVID goverment guidelines. Very few face to face meetings took place.  Ideas were exchanged over Zoom, messages and email.

Listening to Nigerian born Gboyega Akerle Afrobeat lyrics inspired me to take a walk to the local stream, climbing over the fence to watch the still water. I myself through a DNA search discovered that I have Nigerian ancestry thought about the sea and its many travellers in different forms.  Taking photographs of the local areas of water in Blackrock and Dundalk Co. Louth. Combined with text from various storytellers on the history of the slave trade using the routes from Europe to Africa to the Americas called the Middle Passage.
