The Thing I’ll Be Doing



This Sunday, the 30th of June marks the start of our epic new project in Nagoya as a part of the Aichi Triennale, The Thing I’ll Be Doing For The Rest Of My Life.

I am on my way there right now, at Helsinki airport.

This truly is an adventure for us.

With the amazing support of the Triennale and the help of volunteers, we will pull a fishing trawler out of the water, drive it through the streets at night on a lorry, crane it off and then push it into position in central Nagoya. A boy will tell a story on the deck through a megaphone. A film will be made to be seen in the Triennale and an audio piece will be available for you to listen to as you walk around the boat when it sits in its final position.

Above is our boat, it has been gifted to us, she is called Eight Prosper Circle and as soon as I land I will go to meet her for the first time in the flesh.

There is a lot to tell and describe.  But I will leave it there for now.

And if you want to take part, take part, we would love that – come watch, come help, come film, watch remotely, comment away and keep an electronic ear out for tweets etc.  I will let you know what is happening or not, what changes and developments are occurring and when the key events are.

To awakening, and the spirit which resides between order and spontaneity.

If you want to come help or know anyone who might, on the 30th June, please look here for when and where. This link is in Japanese, so we recommend using Google Translate if needed.
