atlas of boats
It's 2020 and I have just moved to Thessaloniki, Greece. A pandemic rages through the world; in the gulf that bathes the city, the waters are calm and the boats keep coming and going. There's little left to do except to go down to the bay to contemplate them. Meaning unravels: boats as journey, voyage, escape; the boat as the object of gazing, in-between inside and outside, projection and introjection; the boat as I; boats as a means for imperialism, capitalism and ongoing forms of human exploitation; the boat as image, and vice-versa, the image as a boat.
