Afloat is a bronze sculpture (by Hamish Black) installed in Brighton, on a breakwater near the Palace Pier; it’s one of my favourite bits of art.

On a rare trip home earlier in the year, it would have be rude not to take a stroll down by the seashore to admire it…

The sculpture is based on the shape of a globe where the north and south poles have been squashed together to make a doughnut shape; the shapes cut into the surface represent the continents – I assume that’s North America near the top of the image.
