Artist Statement:


    Floating Territories uses a series of screen based games to explore issues of migration, territorial boundaries and border protection.

    A swipe card, issued to ISEA ferry participants, arbitrarily assigns a tribal allegiance and suggests an associated social activity. When the player swipes their card at the computer located on the boat, a game is activated that is moderated by the card’s particular code. The game also acts as a portal for participants to map their own personal family migration history, which leads to a visualisation of all previous players’ accumulated data.
