Voyage Platform

Socrates Sculpture Park., September 1998.


It took 7 days to cross Socrates Park on this platform by building it across: taking parts off the back and adding them to the front. We didnšt set foot on the ground or receive help or supplies. We ate, slept, and worked up there until we made it to the other side.

Do a dumb thing in a difficult way.

  From "The Voyagers" documentry:

Shelley turned a simple walk in the park into a monumental adventure. As he says, "...if you do something that's difficult, it means more than if you do something that's not difficult. And I thought also if you did something silly in a very difficult way, all you've got is meaning. You haven't got anything real so you must be just working with meaning."
