L’invisible, The Rock Boat


L’invisible is an artificial rock that can be driven and moved around. The sea-faring boat comes from the mind of a French artist named Julien Berthier.

According to Berthier’s website, the boat was designed to explore and ask questions about the boating industry and the unintended environmental effects of humans. 

I am always drawn to work that subtly modifies an environment or object. The unexpected alteration or juxtaposition that can turn something ordinary into art or a statement has always been really interesting to me. It caught my attention and I thought it was worth sharing.

The same artist previously made a floating sculpture from a large sailboat that had been modified to appear as if it is capsizing – it was called Love-love and the artist described it as a permanent and mobile image of a wrecked ship that has become a functional and safe leisure object.
