Wave is from the 2014 installation ‘Blood Swept Lands and Seas of Red’ at the Tower of London. The poppies and original concept were created by artist Paul Cummins and the installation designed by Tom Piper.

In 2015 Wave and Weeping Window commenced a 3 year tour of the United Kingdom, and the installation at Fort Nelson was the final stage of the tour for Wave. Mum and I visited on the anniversary of Dad’s death. I wasn’t 100% sure it would be the right thing to do but I had inkling it might be perfect. And it was.

  1. I never saw this, either at the Tower or on tour. This looks an especially successful re-positioning, and it must have felt so meaningful for you and your mum.
