Elizabeth Travelslight: Elsewhere

Situated in and around a life-sized toy sailboat, participants are implicated into playful re-imaginations of location, connection, and destination.

Elsewhere is an outdoor installation that invites viewers to pause and consider the influence of new media upon our experiences with the material world.  Situated in and around a life-sized toy sailboat, participants are implicated into playful re-imaginations of location, connection, and destination.

Borrowed from the writing of Donna J. Haraway, “elsewhere” designates the possibilities of collaborative work in the worthwhile, though never entirely knowable, aspiration toward a better world.  The boat is offered as a hybrid vessel for situating our variously mediated pasts as well as for collectively negotiating our digital and material futures.
