Seen from across the water from a fixed telescope, this installation spans the East River, visually and narratively connecting Roosevelt Island to the Park's rocky waterfront. The hand-built boat that appears to have washed in on the tide is part fact, part fantasy -- both physically present and drawn from the imagination. It is a small portal, a peripheral component, of the artist's film-based work also entitled Blackwell's Patience.
