And now for a few interdisciplinary projects involving islands near and far… this is Nowhere Island, a mind-boggling project that took place along the South West coast of England in 2012, in which an island journeyed (!) from the High Arctic region of Svalbard through international waters, becoming the world’s newest nation – ‘Nowhereisland’ – with citizenship open to all. An interesting counterpoint to the politics and rhetoric of ‘border protection’ that we are so accustomed to in contemporary Australia.
