Portavilion 2011: The Floating Cinema
With artists Somewhere and architects Studio Weave
The Inside Out Floating Cinema designed by architects Studio Weave, working with artists Nina Pope and Karen Guthrie (Somewhere), will navigate the waterways of the five Olympic host boroughs during the summer 2011. Pope and Guthrie will spend time with the many communities connected to the canals to develop a project that seeks to gauge a 'human blueprint' of the waterways and connections to the Olympic Park and Games. This extraordinary floating structure will accommodate intimate on-board film screenings, larger outdoor film events and provide a base for the projects led by Pope and Guthrie. The Floating Cinema is a continuation of UP Projects’ Portavilion programme of temporary pavilions for London’s public spaces. It will form part of the Create 2011 summer festival and is commissioned by The Olympic Delivery Authority and funded by Arts Council England.
