Stranded in the middle of the lake, Eden II is monitored
from the bank by a security system that watches the on-board
activities of an imaginary group of refugees
displaced from their own country by climate change
and rising sea levels. The security cameras are located
in a guard shack that can be used by visitors
to both view interior of the ship and of the shack.
The creator of Eden II, Finnish artist, Tia Makipaa, is known
for her multi-media projects using photo landscapes,
video documentation, and built objects to record
"human habits and habituations."
