MSA completes Marquez-inspired 'boat machine'

Matthew Springett Associates (MSA) has completed work on an installation in New Hampshire, USA, inspired by Gabriel Garcia Marquez’s short story ‘Light is Like Water’

The project, entitled ‘Navigating Dreams’, was completed at Beam Camp, an annual summer art and technology camp that commissions collaborative projects for staff and campers aged between seven and 17.

The installation was made up of a timber framed ‘boat machine’ that was used to control suspended constellations of stars created by the 88 campers.

MSA beat 40 submissions from 16 countries to land the project following a global competition which appeared in the AJ last year.

Entrants were asked to come up with proposals costing less than £6,500 that could be constructed by a team of 108 guests in less than 50 hours.
