An intrepid explorer with walkie talkie, web cam and weatherballoon goes off the beaten track in search of answers, they undertake dialogues with passers-by trying to establish where Home is.
Meanwhile back in basecamp a cartographer and documentor watch and eavesdrop, building up a picture of what’s out there. Their search results in the production of a “model” of the world that floats on water: a free flowing map that documents the homes of people across geographical and temporal boundaries. The map is in permanent flux, like human geography. Someone's home in the suburbs of Paris floats past someone elses coast of Ethiopia. In an increasingly homogenous and globalised world, Gob Squad apply scientific poetry to make a map about something very personal.
