Modified wooden boad, milk, slide projection (stars)
127 x 274 x 69cm
The seats and decking of the clinker-built boat have been stripped out, leaving a shape suggesting a stripped carcass. Into this body is poured a shallow lake of milk. I wanted the bodily suggestions of milk, not just a near-white surface. Onto the inside of the boat is projected a (real photographic) vault of stars, with a full-moon added. Inside and outside have inverted and the mind projects the universe out again.
(although the milk has a preservative added it must be changed twice per week or a skin forms. An almost completely dark exhibition space is required.)
