The New Coasts exhibition explores the coastal landscapes of Landguard Point, Felixstowe, and they question what is lost and gained as these landscapes go through designed and unplanned change.

Helena Rivera and Ed Wall have worked with students over the last three years at the University of Greenwich, developing techniques of making tapestries to tell stories of landscapes going through change.

The tapestries are layered to portray complex urbanizing landscapes of infrastructures, processes and operations. Their three dimensions reveal spatial forms and sectional thickness. And their multiple scales connect human interactions with material, political and more-than-human contexts.

The tapestries are thick and heavy, designed to be hung, and read as narratives that connect specific histories of places with designed futures. They tell stories of everyday landscapes, challenged by processes of shifting sands, complete urbanisation, rising sea levels, extractive dredging and global container ports, layered with extraordinary designs of more equitable, shared and possible futures.
