Epic Portage (Luggage Canoe)

UWHAH altered this canoe so it could be disassemble into pieces that nest inside one another until it is the size of two pieces of airline luggage. Displayed vertically, this voluminous, curved sculpture reveals that its form was derived from its function. Addressing views of the ‘wild north’, this urbanized watercraft is practical for the jet-set city-dweller or tourist who has not purchased advance tickets on the boat to Alcatraz.
