  • A 24/7 Interactive Art Installation' by Aurelia Ditton

    http://www.1woman1boat.com/ A 40ft by 28ft wide racing Trimaran [Similar to Ellen McArthur's 'B&Q'] has passed along the River Thames. Using the slipway adjacent to Vauxhall Bridge, at 8:30pm on Saturday 3rd June 2006, the boat was craned from the water and rotated to a 75 degree angle, for transport into Westminster by truck at 1:30am.

    Next door to Tate Britain, the boat is mounted in the Courtyard of Chelsea College of Art. On an angled frame, as if the boat is surging down a huge wave, 25 year old Lia Ditton is living onboard [without getting off], for the same number of days as it took her to race across the Atlantic alone.

    Visitors are invited to climb the staircase to the viewing platform [on top of a shipping container] and peer into the boat's 10ft by 6ft cabin. They are encouraged to interact with Lia Ditton, who will follow the same 24hr sleep pattern as if racing.
