Sandy Island Travel Bureau
Sandy Island Travel Bureau (2014) presents Sandy Island, a sizeable landmass believe to be located in the Coral Sea, as a viable travel destination. Despite its presence on maps for over a century, Sandy Island was recently proven to have never existed and ostensibly erased from all contemporary satellite maps. All information and imagery depicted in this installation is drawn from Google Earth imagery and data, historical records, and current geological and meteorological data.
The Sandy Island Travel Bureau has three components:
1. A video loop depicting Sandy Island’s location as seen on Google Earth
2. Three infinite stacks of postcards depicting different views of Sandy Island’s location as seen on Google Earth.
3. An infinite stack of business cards with the toll-free phone number for the Sandy Island Information Line, a daily automated message detailing current conditions and meteorological forecasts.
