Island (Isla) is an ongoing research project about fishermen in Cuba. The art of commercial fishing in this context has special conditions of access to resources, legal framework, security, among others. It's not easy to buy or sell a small boat and the paperwork involved can be overwhelming, which is why fewer and fewer people are choosing this lifestyle. In the open sea, Cuban fishermen encounter animals small and large, but rely only on outdated and inadequate fishing equipment, some of them even with manufactured flotation devices. These are called Corcheros, and together with the owners of small and rustic boats they sail every day in a naked encounter with nature.
We aim to create an interactive experience where the user can choose from a set of arguments and points of view that will ultimately result in a different experience every time.Whether you choose to go in a small boat or a manufactured flotation device, you will find a different fish and different point of view from which to experience the story.
