sandwich multiples
incorporating messages received in response to:
'where r u ? where would u like 2 b ?'

where r u? on a network... on a boat...

you could be a thousand miles away knowing that your message will be launched at sunset from the banks of the River Avon. Possibly to be discovered by someone, somewhere

'Here nor There, an international artist collective, hosted a very special 4 hour ferry to a secluded waterside venue. The audience enjoyed poetry and music interspersed with the ferryboats' resident commentator.

The carefully co-ordinated experiences involved a moving performance of visual poetry in BSL, improvised voice and trumpet emanating from a derelict pumphouse and a flute & cello sonata played on the dockside.

Worldwide responses to the question
'where r u ? where would u like 2 b ?' submitted on line, imbued the journey with a wider presence materialising as intimate multiples & a celebratory balloon release.'
