THE FLOAT [VIDEO]

Program: Surf recreation • Size: 1.558 m2 • Location: Coast, NL • Status: Completed, 2015

Suddenly, I see a vague object floating between the waves. Determined not by form and texture but by nature. A place unreachable for pedestrians, only surfers are able to go there. The float reacts to the different wind angles and water tides. It gives protection to the people aboard who become one with the wind and sea.

I want to feel the experience. I want to feel the wind embracing me. I want to feel the mattress waving me into sleep at night. I want to be together in a group of people with the same passion, living on a temporary village. Being something temporary not directed by time, but by nature.
