Costa Mediterranea

The cruise Costa Mediterranea is an artificial environment with its own codes and rules. On board you find yourself in a world inspired by different eras and continents, randomly mixed together. Every act, every programme, every meal, every table companion, every outfit is scripted in advance. My life on board was meticulously taken care of. I was in a non-place that became a new everyday reality. Like an ethnographer, I explored the onboard behaviour. By moving, registering, staging, collaging, and rephotographing, I investigated the curious interplay of decor, rules, crew, passengers, customs, rituals and tourism.
