'LIfe Raft' by Ellie Harrison, exhibited as part of Doug Fishbone’s Leisure Land Golf.

Description of exhibit from https://www.ellieharrison.com/liferaft -

Designed as the final hole of Doug Fishbone’s Leisure Land Golf, Life Raft – a scale map of the UK floating in the adjacent canal – offers a safe haven to immigrant golf balls that can make the treacherous crossing. In a typically playful way, Harrison’s work hints towards a somewhat darker time in the future, when the continued rise in global temperatures creates a vast number of ‘climate refugees’ desperate to escape to more temperate climes.
