Things to consider...

1. “ We live in a spectacular society, that is, our whole life is surrounded by an immense accumulation of spectacles. Things that were once directly lived are now lived by proxy. Once an experience is taken out of the real world it becomes a commodity. As a commodity the spectacular is developed to the detriment of the real. It becomes a substitute for experience. ”
—Larry Law,
Images And Everyday Life

2.Taking back experience
eg. the situationist view:
'The Situation: this concept, central to the SI, was defined in the first issue of their journal as "A moment of life concretely and deliberately constructed by the collective organization of a unitary ambiance and a game of events."'

3.ships/boats role history of exploring new lands- ours could be to do with an imagined land- imaginary creatures etc.
- links to the ideas we were having regarding the 2012 exhibition

Loving how cheap the registration shit could be. Pete's a legend.
