Sail Away | Navega Lejos

A flotilla of paper boats snaking across the floor of the space. The interactive element involved thousands of people. Exploring the idea of ‘six degrees of separation’, the theme of the HYPERLINK Festival, SAIL AWAY considered connections through travel, trade, mapping, personal and social histories. The materials used (paper currency notes, travel tickets, maps, paint brushes) represent the unknown links we have with the past and each other, connecting us to all of the people who have handled the materials in the past. Boats are often symbolic of the transition from the material to the spiritual world, acting as carriers for our dreams, vessels for our adventures.”

“Una flota de barcos de papel que serpentean a través del piso del espacio. El elemento interactivo involucró a miles de personas. Explorando la idea de” seis grados de separación “, el tema del Festival HYPERLINK, Sail Away considera las conexiones a través de los viajes, el comercio, la cartografía , historias personales y sociales. Los materiales utilizados (billetes, boletos de viaje, mapas, pinceles) representan los enlaces desconocidos que tenemos con el pasado y con los demás, que nos conecta con todas las personas que han manejado los materiales en el pasado. Los Barcos son a menudo un símbolo de la transición de la materia con el mundo espiritual, actuando como portadores de nuestros sueños, vasos para nuestras aventuras “.
