Local Dudes
by Permindar Kaur

"Thirteen brightly coloured figures march towards the DFDS passenger terminal building at North Shields. With their shiny helmets and boots, are they warriors retreating or attacking? Or are they more playful, like toys searching for new playmates from another country or continent? Friend or foe? Where have they come from….why are they here….where are they going? Powdered in bright blue and red, the figures represent what a port is about - moving, travelling. Seeking out the new."
