Cargo Ship for Sad Girl Review3D Model
Created for Sad Girl Review Issue 8: Anchor & Root.
“A Cargo ship anchored off the coast of Nanaimo’s downtown district can be considered an eyesore to some, but the ships’ functionality and size has an undeniable aesthetic appeal. On a clear day, you can see dozens of these large vessels parked around the islands on the Salish Sea. All of the things we buy, even the girly things, are shipped to us from far away. Cargo ships can also be seen as symbols of colonialism, supporting destructive resource extraction and shipping goods made with exploitative labour. They serve to remind us that many of us had our “roots” planted here by those who arrived by boat and chose to lower their anchors in unceded lands.”
Model was intended to be viewed from one specific side for a promotional image, which is why the text is flipped on the other side.
