We love children’s games: old fashion, romantic or nostalgic, like the game of bottling a message in a bottle and sending it across rivers and oceans, hoping it can be found by someone and put back up to us. A different way way to find a stranger becoming a special friend! – the opposite of today, where hyper-connection and fast internet keep us superficially busy and more in acquaintances than real friendships.
Our installation is such a game: an oversized bottle with very detailed Marquette ship that sweeps into a water bank, in its own microcosm.
It represents a journey, the actual process of making friends from one place to another and offers a magical light show, full of surprise and curiosity. The ship is a super detailed, it moves through waves with countless LED lights, weather and cannon simulation that shoot smoke, messages projected from the ship on the bottle itself and much much more – merged with an adventurous soundtrack – the true spirit of voyage and exploration to new horizons.
May it have great journey, land on new shores and find many new friends.
