Something strange on the beach

I was cycling along the cycle path to the Longrock area of Penzance on Sunday, when I noticed something distinctly unusual happening on the beach.

The person on the right hand side of this photo was standing at a tripod, so I assume that this was part of an art project, rather than a spontaneous “line mob” on a showery Sunday afternoon.

If anyone knows anything about this, I’d love to hear about it, and see the end result. Please leave a comment if you can.

[Update] Simon Reed suggests that this was one of artist Hamish Fulton’s Communal Walks, and I reckon he’s right. Mystery solved. Thanks, Simon!
