Last night, just before I wanted to log off and go to bed, I saw new pictures on Flickr posted by Mexi Lane of her latest art installation on MIC : That’s Italy. Enough to pospone bedtime and TP over to have a look!
That’s Italy is not so much about the country Italy, but ‘Italy’ is the name of a rusty container ship, which seems to have ended on the rocks and lost most of its cargo – containers and rubbish floating in the water around it. On the ship are the little houses Mexi has used in her previous works.
You can tour around the ship by using one of the hovercrafts, which is a lovely way to explore this build!
Maybe there is a deeper meaning behind this work, but Mexi leaves that up to the visitors. In her notecard she merely explains how she created this, by re-texturing objects and putting them together.
