Installation on Chinese junk ship

Canadian artists Janet Cardiff and George Bures Miller have brought their experimental art to the masses with an installation housed in a salvaged, thirty-foot Chinese junk ship in Toronto’s Trinity Bellwoods Park.

While the outside of the ship is a vision in itself, the cramped, dark cabin is where the artists’ chaotic vision is on display through moving parts and random sounds — among them, a stationary bottle spinning water, drumsticks hitting pots and pans, flashing bulbs, old radio snippets and a violin that plays itself. The installation, entitled Ship O’ Fools and part of the fourth annual Luminato arts festival, will reportedly hit Berlin later this year.
