Bristol is final port of call after incredible journey of Nowhere Island
It's been an incredible journey for such a small island. A floating sculpture, towed from the Arctic oceans, transformed into a nation and charged with a remit to change peoples perceptions.
Nowhere Island was created by artist Alex Hartley out of the debris left by a melting glacier in the Arctic. Towed south it has sailed the high seas around the South West coast line during the Olympics and Para-Olympics as part of the Cultural Olympiad.
Docking at 8 harbours along the coastline it has signed up more than 20,000 people as citizens and created it's own constitution based on their wishes.
But every journey must eventually come to an end, and as Nowhere Island passed under the Suspension bridge and into Bristol, it's final port of call, it was a time to reflect on it's epic adventure.
