For our participation in John Cage's Musicircus, we chose to concentrate on the practical details of our project and delivered a lecture on the research we have done to prepare ourselves to build the expeditionary sailing dinghy. We concentrated specifically on the history of boat building materials such as marine plywood and epoxy resin and the social and economic ramifications of their use in contemporary building practices. We also created a paper cut out model of our dinghy and handed out copies to our audience
