The Course of Love

A boat drifting on the ow of consciousness

The artists made a large boat-like object, shaped like one folded from paper, and covered it with lenticular sheets that alter its appearance when viewed from different angles.
They then placed this on a real boat floating on the water, using geometric shapes and materials with optical effects to represent a ship. Inspired by an ancient Japanese poem about a love that drifts aimlessly like a boat without oars, the work rises and falls with the tides, flickering like flame on the undulating water.
