Pilot house in Køge, 2.5 m x 1.8 m x 2.4 m. Video installation, video loop 3 min, with sound.

At the far end of a pier stands a pilot house. In the window a sailor is dancing with a girl. An unschooled voice sings a sea shanty, and one wonders whether they are reunited after a long period of separation or whether it is the final dance before he again puts out to sea. A project made in co-operation with Hartmut Stockter DK and Phillip Simmons US
