FreePort [No.001]: Charles Sandison's 'Figurehead'
Peabody Essex Museum, 2010-2011

Charles Sandison reflects on his installation for PEM's FreePort no.001


Sandison brings the East India Marine Hall into dazzling new light with 'Figurehead,' a writhing sea of handwritten words and drawings that twist and flow across the museum's historic East India Marine Hall. The projected words and images were gathered by Sandison while exploring ship logs and sailor's journals at PEM's own Phillips Library.


This installation is on view through April 24th, 2011. Don't miss it! For more information about FreePort, click on the Exhibitions tab at
