Trinity House

cardinal marks .png

Mariners will be safe if they pass north of a north mark, south of a south mark, east of an east mark and west of a west mark. Cardinal Marks are also used for permanent wreck marking whereby North, East, South and West Cardinal buoys are placed around the wreck. In the case of a new wreck, any one of the cardinal buoys may be duplicated and fixed with a Radar Beacon (RACON).

At night, the lights of Cardinal Marks are programmed with distinct identifying characters; as an aide memoire they can be considered to flash in accordance with positions on a clock face whereby an East Cardinal flashes three times, a South Cardinal six times (but with an added long flash to make it more distinctive) and a West Cardinal nine times. The North Cardinal doesn’t quite fit the pattern – having a continuous quick or very quick flash.

The buoy illustration shows Type 2 configurations of buoys. These are approximately three metres in diameter and weigh approximately six tonnes excluding moorings. Buoys need to be recognised both in daylight and at night and use topmarks to assist in identification. A topmark on a Cardinal Buoy is triangular and coloured black. Topmarks and buoy colours themselves are arranged in order to represent the points on a compass.

Image caption:

Labourers work on the redevelopment of East India Docks. Standing in the entrance passage from the basin to the export dock, John H Avery photographed construction work at East India Docks. In 1912, work started to widen the entrance passage between the basin and the import dock, which was parallel to the export dock. Transit sheds were also built on the quays. The East India Dock had only a few warehouses, so most cargoes were transported to the City of London for storage in the Town Warehouses. The steamship in the background could be from the Union Castle Line, which was one of the principal lines to use these docks. The liners carried passengers, cargo and mail to and from South and East Africa.

Description: Until its closure in the 1980s, Trinity House's Blackwall depot, located at the junction of the Thames and Bow Creek, was responsible for the maintenance and the replacement of buoys. In this image, men on board the Trinity House vessel 'Hanton' life a buoy on board in order to replace it.

Angkor Wat, Siem Reap, Cambodia

This temple complex in Cambodia, which was built in the twelfth century, is the largest on Earth. It is fascinating because the 'temple complex is supported by a hydraulic engine- eastern and western pools. which are called barays.' I found this really interesting because not only is it entirely handmade but they are connecting architecture to the natural world as well as inputting sustainable and practical means to their advantage. This is because the Khmer culture is a monsoon one, therefore the 'pools function to evaporate cooling towers or plate heat exchanges, create a cooling breeze', therefore by using this method, the Khmer have made their own version of air conditioning.

Alejandro Duran, Washed Up project

Brotes+2014.jpg

Over the course of this project, Duran 'identified plastic waste from fifty-eight nations and territories on six continents that have washed on the coast of Sian Ka'an, Mexico's largest federally protected reserve and an UNESCO World Heritage site'. He uses the waste he found to create a colour-based and sculptures that merges man and nature together. He uses the objects he finds to mimic nature like waves, roots, algae or fruit.
