Proposal for UrbanFestival Zagreb, 2009
Interrogation of a Boat
On the otherwise barren floodplain of the Sava River, a wooden rowboat rests impaled by a lit streetlamp rising out of the grass field. As the seasonal waters in the river rise and ebb, the boat also moves up and down the shaft of the lamppost, changing position with the level of the water.
At this intersection of the public (lamppost) and private (boat) spheres, Interrogation of a Boat suggests the extent to which this particular area in the city of Zagreb - the river, the flood plain and embankment, etc. - are understood and appreciated by the city planners. This installation has been developed as a proposal for the UrbanFestival 2009.
