Imagine being in a world of water, deserted from the mainland. Where detachment controls your actions and being isolated becomes a new state of mind. When Rana Van Pellecom found herself on the Primula, these feelings transformed into images. The emotions that could be experienced after losing oneself are represented by different views of land and sea. As an outsider, she caught a glimpse of the life within these massive walls of steel. All connections got lost between head & body and vessel & mainland. Yet the Primula kept sailing as a world on its own.
