Peter Callesen - Palace of Dreams

Performance festival Amorph in Helsinki, August 29 – 31 2003.
2 x 3 x 3 meter floating Castle made of white polystyrene.

A castle made entirely from polystyrene, that floats on the water. not a performance piece, but the viewer is rowed out to spend half an hour inside the palace of dreams by the artist himself, before being picked up in the same two man row boat Callesen drops them off in. so although it is not a performance, the artist still plays a role, above the architect and creator. could i incorporate these ideas in to my contemporary practice?
