Fourteen people from different Bristol neighbourhoods embarked on a journey by boat from the harbour to the edges of the city. From this in-between space, away from land, The Floating reflected on who speaks for, and to, the city.
A twelve-part collaboratively-produced text was published along the harbour wall and viewable by ferry during Bristol Biennial 2016.
A series of collective texts written, designed and published by:
Kate Murray, Tom Burgess, Gabrielle Sedita, Julie Woods, Kamina Walton, Judy Darley, Mike Manson, Cleo Lake, Alex Bridge, Kieran Battles, Bec Chalkley, Chris Rose, Michael Tew, Daniel Jopling, Jesse Tate, Mandy Sharman, Amy Spencer, Jen Conway, Jessy Young, Tess Sieling, Ella-Sian Dovey, Jodie Nixon, Callum Rothwell, Lisa Davies , Gregg Mcdonald, Jessica Reid and Tom Craner-Buckley.
With thanks to Bristol Ferry Company, The Harbour Master, Bristol CIty Council, Arnolfini and Roser Diaz.
This is a project by Conway and Young with Amy Spencer.
