  • Imagining Godzilla: An Art Research Network Platform

    Andy Best

    Chapter from the book: Krieg C. & Toivanen R. 2021. Situating Sustainability: A Handbook of Contexts and Concepts.


    This chapter is an extended contribution from a collection of artists headed by Andy Best and Merja Puustinen. Best and Puustinen’s project, ‘Imagining Godzilla’, turned their Polynesian-style sailing catamaran into a research vessel on the Baltic Sea. With other artists on board, the catamaran became a mobile platform for creative-research projects on topics ranging from undersea Internet cables, new materialist explorations of phosphate circulation, audio-visual technologies and knowledge, and performative/auto-ethnographic accounts that probe the boundaries of life on land and sea.
