Fluxland is the name of Cyril de Commarque‘s boat sculpture and performance for the Thames Festival in London 2017.
A Dutch barge stripped to its core, its length went from 38 to 25m, the upper deck was replaced by a glass fibre reinforced plastics shell, clad in stainless steel polished mirror sheets.
The Fluxland project started in the Netherlands where the boat has been dismantled and rebuild, its finishing has been carried out in the UK.
As the technical development manager for this project, I was in charge of researching suitable building technologies that could apply to this unique case. I drew, planned and coordinated its fabrication from demolition to assembly.
