“…a mixture of humour, sometimes sadness, philosophy and lots of clever observation.”

Andrew Eccleston BSc (Hons) PhD CMet FRMetS MNI FHEA

 “utterly blown away by your exquisite Fish Eaters. It is a marvel, just amazing.  The poems and illustrations are so perfectly in harmony, a unique and beautiful book.”

Penelope Shuttle

“Here is a poetry that comes out of that meaningful intersection between art and science: where words move through the water, where an ocean is created out of the human body, and where the air is alive with thought.”

Professor Anthony Caleshu

Together with graphic artists and underwater photographers, Caroline Carver has produced a series of poems inspired by the Plymouth University Marine Building. The result is a series of lines and snippets from Caroline’s work that form part of the fabric of the building and create a poem of each person’s making as they journey through the building. Caroline engaged with a range of science and engineering research groups, finding out about their work and their passion and excitement for what they do and for the marine realm generally, spinning out from this to connect with local schools and academies. Specially commissioned, it is beautifully illustrated throughout.
