This video features appropriated coastguard rescue footage and audio from The HMS Bounty, the ship that sank during Hurricane Sandy in 2012. Tragically the captain went down with the ship, but my close friend on board at that time was rescued. The tall ship has a deep history with hollywood films, which fits in with my fascination with green screen processes and image production techniques. The ship has lived several lives and has existed in many forms by sinking and being rebuilt since the early 1800’s. Here I am creating a literal Ship of Theseus, engaging directly with the Ship of Theseus paradox.
