The sculptures featured in A Thousand Tides have been inspired by the sea grasses, nudibranchs, sea slugs and other marine invertibrets that call Western Port Bay home. The Underwater Creatures Lab has been created as a very special feature within Vera Möller's exhibition. It provides a creative space for children - and adults - to create their very own creature using a bit of plasticine and a lot of imagination. What other creatures could live in western port bay? Let's bring them to life!
