Inspired by the recent arrival of refugees from Kosovo and illegal Chinese immigrants.

A boat is a symbol of hope in many cultures, it is a means by which people can flee the hostilities of their own lives and travel to exotic places which perhaps promise the offer of safety or freedom. From hostility and the drabness of life, to excitement, hope and something better.

We are all in the boat, refugees on a journey, escaping from something to the promise of something better.
