the odyssey project



august 2012

The Ultimate Boon: It is 8:30am on the Staten Island Ferry. The ferry leaves the terminal. You are bleary-eyed and sleepy. You sip coffee. You check your email. You read the Post. Suddenly, a stranger strikes up a conversation. It's as though he is talking directly to you. Speaking directly to you. You share an exchange. He gets up. The ferry approaches Manhattan. The ferry docks. You go to work.

An invisible performance tucked within the routine of the morning commute, we explore the hidden forces that drive us forward.

What, exactly, do we want? And, more importantly, WHY do we want it?
