asap-island is needed worldwide, as the demand for floating islands rises with the sea levels
asap-island is under construction in Goa/India.
After 3 years of construction, we finally present the Open-Source-Manual for „Open-Islands“.
On this occupied sea fortress, you´ll find our virtual headquarter for all these projects, the Sealand Multiversity of the seven seas.
Joy works on floating sculptures and installations since his 70m2 recycling raft „future-raft“ for the worldfair EXPO2000. 12 years and several floats later, he founded the maritime Maker platform Sealand Multiversity and started the construction of asap-island in Goa/India with local partners and an international community. The plan was to create an autarkic floating island in subtropical waters, low-budget and open-source. Inspired by the climate-change related rise of sea-levels, asap-island is ment as a pilot project, research platform and design-study for bottom-up development help.
While Joy considers this process of cocreating a floating habitat as a glocal social sculpture, the asap-island project grows interdisciplinary in its different directions within the collaborative cocreation.
After the catamaran raft i-land Goa for the Arabian Sea in 2012 and the riverboat Saly on River Sal in 2013, the Sealand Multiversity now initiated the 5 weeks „asapisland 3.0“ workshop in India. Once again, the German NGO „Positive Nett-Works“ cooperated with „Art Escape“ and „Design Intervention“ in Goa.
See the logbook of these 5 weeks of passionate work, cocreative improvisation and joyful learnings within a multicultural interdisciplinar team, creating a floating island out of recycled and renewable materials, the beginning of OPEN-ISLAND.

New pirates and a mermaid-ambassadress for our asap-island!
At the „Crazy Crossing“ boat-race, the german asap-island team participated with one of Joy´s floating islands, shaped like a heart. Some new pirates aboard powered the green heart with a mermaid on top. The most beautiful singer and new project ambassadress Carlotta Truman (14) waved her hand and tail majestically and got our island onto the frontpages of regional media as well as into the hearts of the audience.
