Short description:
We hear voices and we see pictures. People remember and we become witnesses of their memories. And while we become witnesses, we remember ourselves. Maybe. Not all memories are divisible, but there are bridges. There is the ship, there is the sea. There is the container. There is the living space, rather limited, four people in nine square meters. Fates of war, fates of refugees. Perhaps the experience on board the "Bibby Challenge" was not much different than on Noah's Ark - both ships with a grotesquely bloated belly. The form follows the function: to accommodate as much life as possible. The "Bibby Challenge" does not actually sail; it floats. The ship is part of the city and yet a body beyond space and time.
