Floating Dice!


The blocks are fabricated by a shipbuilder skilled in fishing boats – each one composed of plywood, pine, PVC and epoxy. In late 2012, mulhern had them shipped from brittany to the canary islands, and, at noon on the fortuitous date of 12/12/12, he set them afloat into the atlantic, and has left them to chance. To keep track of the artwork, technology students in normandy custom-built his GPS systems which have sent out locations of the die once a day so the progress can be recorded by anybody interested. Both dice were about 1,100 miles west of the canary islands and only about 60 miles apart as of the 01/07/12 – scientists predict the two floating objects will separate quickly.” w/ photos
