A boat trip to heaven

This project called Heaven is one of the activities in Rob Sweere's week of Lightness. A ferry-like boat on the water in front of Mediamatic. You are invited to lay on it and watch the heaven above you rotate as though you were in it.

In an age where everyone is affected by the weight of society, the overbearing fears of the economy and the heavy hand of government, 'lightness' is the way forward. Let go of the material and celebrate the ethereal with 11 weeks of 'lightness'. Each week Mediamatic invites a new artist to question the meaning of 'lightness'.
