27 Seconds of Silence
Craig felt a kinship with the crews of both the Helwick Light-ship and the Cape Horners, being moved by the notion of men living in isolation out at sea or away from their families and loved ones. He himself has spent the last few years travelling and working away from his own family.
His work on board the Helwick Light-ship utilised factual information about the mechanics of the ship but re-presented it in a way that made the text poetical, talking of more human elements, the moments of silence and reflection that occur when people are away from home.
In 2000 Locws International staged its first citywide event with 15 international and UK-based artists creating new temporary artworks in and around historic sites across the city
All work was site-specific and responded to the character and location of the venues and the history of the city.
