The work consists of a 1:1 scale reconstruction of the 18th century British naval vessel, HMS Bounty, starting from its model kit.

The project travels, evolving as it connects to new people and places each time the work takes shape. Through workshops open to the public involving schools and inhabitants of the area, parts of the ship are recreated by using waste materials. These workshops transform the project space into a naval arsenal sui generis for a few weeks.

The project ends every time with a party where the parts of the vessel are revealed to the public. The sails are hoisted, the prow “launched” with an opening concert, the flag left to unfurl in the wind, the helmsman turns the wheel...
