DICTIONARY 

OF THE SEA 

In one word, sum up how the sea makes you feel.

I created a small booklet of words to describe our feelings of being by the sea, in the sea or after swimming the sea. I asked as many people as possible and surprisingly gathered 44 responses...

Alert. Alive. Awake. Beautiful. Calm. Clean. Cold. Connected. Content. Energetic. Excited. Fierce. Flow. Fresh. Grateful. Happy. Humble. Insignificant. In tune. Invigorated. Mindful. Patient. Pause. Peaceful. Perspective. Powerful. Safe. Salty. Sandy. Slow. Small. Strengthened. Strong. Therapeutic. Tired. Relaxed. Relieved. Respect. Rested. Revitalised. Vibrant. Warm. Weightless. Zen. 

I really enjoyed this little project because it was so nice to hear everyone’s lovely responses. I used a minimal approach to bring attention to the words and printed on recycled paper stock with a small amount of ink to try and be as environmentally friendly as possible.
