Visitors to Brighton cast multi-coloured pebbles onto the beach to create a giant canvas on the seafront this weekend.

SPECTRA:CAST, the interactive installation from artist duo Walter & Zoniel, took place to the west of Brighton Palace Pier from Friday, May 12 to Sunday, May 14, as part of the Brighton Festival.

Visitors were able to paint their stones their chosen colour, with each hue representing an individual artistic view by the painter.

As a myriad of opinion mounts up, the beach gradually represents 'the diversity of creativity and outlook that powers cultural debate'.

The artists told the Brighton Festival: "Everyone should feel empowered to engage and have access to art, and we are strong advocates of that. The artwork exhibited on the beach will be a representation of everyone’s opinions."
