project to build a floating city made up of refurbished ships tethered
The mission of Mid Ocean is two fold:
1 - To revive, house, care for and hopefully provide a fulfilling
life for refugees who
have been rescued at sea.
2 - To demonstrate to a world overpopulated by the human species that,
as rising oceans cover the habitat of a large part part of planet
Earth: helping humans to survive upon the oceans could be a sustainable
alternative to the predictable attrition to be wrought by horsemen
accompanying an ocean rise Apocalypse.
Note: This project was conceived in 1990 when an international oil
company invited engineers, ecologists, economists and artists to propose
sustainable alternatives to the current earth polluting practise of
breaking up decommissioned tankers (and other ocean going vessels).
