Otter by Colette Mulholland
Inspired by the Conscious Lee project and part of Creativity & Change, the otter took form as a metaphor for all life sustained by our rivers and as a means of emphasising the importance of protecting our rivers as a valuable resource. Woven from willow and various other twigs and branches that grow along the river, his suspended form is woven with wire to reflect his underwater diving motion .
Book illustration exhibition by Ann Lambe
The book, “An Otters life on the River Lee” is an illustrated poetry book for children about a family of otters living on the river Lee in Cork. The poem highlights the plight of the otters for survival in the face of flooding, culverting, littering and climate change. The relationships and friendships in the story reflect how we need to connect to nature to protect habitats and water and value rivers for our future generations.
The book was a concept developed as part of the ‘Conscious Lee’ awareness raising campaign for the Creativity and Change course in the Crawford College of Art and Design, MTU. For further information visit http://www.creativityandchange.ie/concsious-lee/
