Land Raft :: Northern Spark 2017
Land Raft simulates what it means to mobilize in a time of great environmental change. It is a tangible execution of rescuing the metaphorical and insurmountable sinking ship of our landscape. Using the visual language of preparing for a modern day great flood, Northern Spark participants donned lifejackets, linked arms and loaded five tons of sand onto a life/land raft. Working in teams no larger than six, audience members were able to make manifest a physical accretion of sediment highlighting that every grain counts in the charge of keeping our land afloat.
