Heterotopia: a boat is a floating piece of space

"If we think, after all, that the boat is a floating piece of space, a place without a place, that exists by itself, that is closed in on itself and at the same time is given over to the infinity of the sea [...] the ship has not only been for our civilisation, from the sixteenth century until the present, the great instrument of economic development [...] but has simultaneously the greatest reserve of the imagination. The ship is the heterotopia par excellence."
(Michel Foucault)

This can of course extend to oil rigs as Justin Beal in his oil + water paper indicates.

ReBoot: Floating Media-laboratory

Elizabeth Sikiaridi and Frans Vogelaar
In October 1999, a boat spent a week voyaging down the Rhine from Cologne to Rotterdam and Amsterdam as a floating media–laboratory. On board were eighty passengers: artists, musicians, architects, urbanist and media collectives from both North Rhine–Westphalia and the Netherlands. They were all working on projects dealing with the space of flows (the river) and spaces places (along the journey). ReBoot [the name is a play on words, as ‘Boot’ means ‘boat’ in both German and Dutch] was launched by the Academy of Media Arts Cologne and De Balie, Centre for Culture and Politics in Amsterdam, under the aegis of the official cultural exchange and co–operation project of North Rhine–Westphalia and the Netherlands, entitled "kunst NRW.NL”.

"A father says goodbye to his young daughter and leaves. As the wide Dutch landscapes live through their seasons so the girl lives through hers. She becomes a young woman, has a family and in time she becomes old, yet within her there is always a deep longing for her father."
