Walking Island

Walking Island, 2001, is a photo series produced in the capital of Malé, Maldives, with the same miniature island that is used in the The Mobile Island video from the same year.

This work aims to re-think ideas about the transformation of the landscape (a walking island) and relates to land art from the 1970’s.

The local Maldivian fisherman carrying the small model island on this head around the capital did raise a few eyebrows.
