Prepare to leave

For an installation I always try to connect personal, historic and site-specific aspects. In this case inspiring connections occur: my grandfather worked for NDSM making technical drawings; he was a seaman. What to pack for months at sea? And what to take with you if you embark now, for a journey between hope and fear – maybe just your mobile phone? Would you stand at the railing continuously hoping to see land?
