Pleasure to meet you all. I am a language/computation/projection artist (work here: http://saitokoriel.com/) that is very interested in sea-steading. Why is there no arts and culture, category, y’all!
I’ve made projections for two large scale art/science boat projects: http://www.wet-land.org/ + http://www.swaleny.org/ and just attended ephemerisle for the first time. I have a few friends that have done projects on cargo ships and I’m curious about such projects myself.
I’m very interested in the French Polynesia venture and wondering about how to become involved: where the entry point might be for someone with my skills? I’m also very curious about ocean-based living at a far more modest scale, so floating neighborhoods are of particular interest to me. I’m currently looking into exploring the few that currently exist in the bay area.
