Installation

An installation of attempting to arrive at the center of the earth’s surface, where the equator meets the prime meridian. Alves studied on her own how to triangulate positions and then went to the Navigation Academy in Antwerp and met with the teachers there. A sailing ship captain made a trip on his boat with the artist and offered practical instructions. Adverts were placed in newspapers requesting a ship, a captain and a cook.
