Fiona created a series of work for the commissioned Voyages programme as a response to her concerns for environmental degradation: the dramatic decline in coral life, shells and resident sea creatures. The sculptures were sited at Contains Art, Watchet, Somerset.

Inspired by her collection of flotsam and jetsam from voyages to coastlines in Somerset, other parts of UK and abroad, the works were created from scrap metal and found materials sourced from Watchet and surrounding countryside. The pieces celebrate the wonders of sea life, hopeful of a better future for our environment. Found, now Missing was sited on the shipping container overlooking Watchet marina and Bristol Channel, visible from the West Somerset steam railway line and viewing platform on the cliff.

What once seemed beneficial voyages of discovery by naturalists have, ironically, led to the current situation in which mass tourism degrades the environments/habitats/ecosystems, which inspire us to travel” - Fiona
