Reading the Waves: LK243 Undersail

A research and development residency

A project to explore the feasibility of an artist in residence programme for the Tall Ships Race 2011 to take place on board The Swan, a herring drifter built in 1900. The resultant work, presented as a publication, considers the creative potential of such a residency by addressing the interdependent social, environmental and personal realms that animate the seas through which the Swan travels and the shores from which she takes her crew and history.

An inversion of the usual, land-centric perspective, this projection focusses on the marine, at the expense of landmass, which is distorted to fit the flat map plane.
