A large golden parabola sits strapped to the foredeck of a lone yacht floating hundreds of kilometres from land in the middle
of the Atlantic ocean. The disc forms a part of a solar extruder apparatus, a machine designed on the one hand to process
and re-purpose plastic fished from the great oceanic gyres, on the other to challenge manufacturing typologies, re-imagine and
re-interpret craft in the modern age and ultimately to inspire and capture the essence of the quest, a journey, an adventure,
outside of our everyday, into the unknown.
