          • Floating Island (three channel video installation, one channel sound)

            Floating Island is a picture collage that captures life on board the oil tanker Furenäs during a two-week journey, Gävle-Gdansk-Amsterdam-Rotterdam. The pictures depict the boat's different sides, both the daily work and life on board and the environment around it. Life and work aboard a tanker can become isolated since the sailors rarely get a chance to leave the boat. Working a vessel is not a way to see the world any more. Some of the crew are working onboard for nine months nonstop, while others have just signed on after six weeks of leave. To live through all the mundane things on board a oil tanker creates a rather peculiar environment. Both work and rest, amusement and boredom share the same space. The monotonous sound of the oil tanker creates an everyday chorus as its crosses the oceans. The harsh environment at sea affects the work of the route. The oil tanker is in Faroese flag, but sailing for a Swedish shipping company, which means that the contracts that seafarers have differing widely depending on which nationality they belong to. Many days are similar on the oil tanker, and finding a way to let time go until it is time for the next stop may be viewed as a challenge, depending on whether it is a week, a month or a year until a long time off. To obtain meaningful to everyday life and create a distinction between work and rest is a challenge for everyone who is taking part of this isolated environment. You may take one day at a time, some say it is life between work and rest as you live for. For some, these moments are not so common. Text: Maja-Lena Johansson

                      I had time to kill while at work and this is how I did it. Even though this clip is rough, the idea has potential. The floating effect was created by jumping thousands of times and splicing together the 3 frames of me in the air. I recommend not to do this on a ship, have nothing in the background that will move... like people or the horizon. Oh and if your unfit like me, get someone else to do the jumping. My legs hurt!! The camera was just a sony XR500 and edited on FCP7 Thanks to DJ Kamui the track can be downloaded at itunes: Dang Dang Zumas & Sol Noir
