"A fisherman passes a shipwreck near the port of Greenville, Liberia. In the mid 1990s, a vessel arrived carrying an aid cargo of rice and fuel. The captain and crew left the ship when it developed a problem and was in danger of sinking. They returned the next day to find that the whole cargo had disappeared and the ship had been ravaged".

What I first thought would be a relatively subtle installation has turned into a delightfully major intervention in the park. Since 100 Acres opened in 2010, we have aimed for a less-directed approach, moving away from the copious didactic information and wayfinding that one finds inside the museum proper. Beck’s installation cleverly plays upon those conventions, and does so in a way that I anticipate will help visitors let go a bit and embrace the indeterminacy of exploring the outdoor world.
