Photos from Clare Wardman tracing the movements of fishermen setting nets in Porthmeor:
some photos exploring 'trace' in St Ives: first, focusing on Porthmeor Studios:
Porthmeor Beach as seen from the Island. Porthmeor Studios is boxed in red, compared against holiday apartment conversions either side, traces of the old walls, other buildings: including Tate St Ives (itself built through the old gas works), & the high-storeyed townhouses higher on the hill.
One of the four old pilchard brining tanks in Cellar 4 (originally these would not have been boarded over). The tank brining technique was one of the last used before the industry declined, & these tanks may never have been used for brining, but were used as storage by fishermen. The other tank on this side of the Cellar houses the archives, & the 2 on the opposite side form part of Mark Dion's installation The Maritime Artist.
Marks on the inside of the tank.
Markings around the Cellar dating from its use by fishermen to store equipment.
