February 5th 2004 Video
On the night of February 5th 2004, 23 migrant workers from China drowned as they gathered cockles from the sands of Morecambe Bay, on the coast of north-west England. This film by John Davis, Alex McErlain and Stephen Yates shows how ceramic artist Vicky Eden responded to this tragic event by creating an installation to commemorate those who lost their lives.
