We Are All In The Same Boat
Reminiscent of the commercial signage frequently found in urban landscapes and generally located on the tops of façades or buildings, We Are All In The Same Boat translates a familiar phrase into a text-based installation, consisting of an illuminated signboard made with ocean-blue LED letters mounted on an aluminium frame and weighed down by orange PVC sandbags.
The sentence, suggestive of the common human condition, usually refers to unpleasant or difficult situations which affect us all. It acts as a reminder of our shared responsibilities. The work subtly queries whether, as contemporaries, we suffer from the same issues, endure the same difficulties, and if we are equally equipped to face them.
