Mare Liberum

To establish laws when it comes to water seems to be a difficult task. Maybe it’s because of the diffuse material nature, or maybe it’s because of all the diverse activities happening there. The waters around Stockholm is not heavily controlled, but instead heavily occupied by ferries, tourism and other commercial activities, which limits its accessibility. Mare Liberum consists of movable pontoons that can be used, connected and adapted to all situations in the water or shoreline. It is a platform for alternative activities, which intend to challenge the established way of using the water.
