Over the August Bank Holiday, a huge sea-faring vessel stood in Theatre Square outside the National Theatre.
Ark-ive was a space to explore humans' complex relationships with the animal world, categorised into three areas: the animals in our homes, the animals in our heads and wild encounters with animals.
'Each evening we battened down the hatches and raised our sails. At night time, some of the findings and imagery from the day were projected onto the sail.'
Some questions asked by the Ark-ist and clerks in the Ark-ive were: Are there animals in your dreams? What do they do? If you were an animal what animal would you be? Have you ever met a wild creature? What happened?
Ark-ive was built in collaboration with National Theatre as part of the Inside Out Festival.
