Boat sails on the keyboard

Boat sails on the keyboard

This object was made during the Prix Italia media event in Cagliari, Sardinia in Italy. Its fine structure says a lot about the person who made it. It was made from a sugar cube paper. During heavy sessions of discussion about the entries of the Prix one of the jurymembers gave it to me to sail the keyboard. This little boat would help us to choose the right words to adress to the winner. And we did: BBC won with Iplayer that year!
