'Nowhere Island' Arrives At Cornish Coast
12:20pm 13th August 2012
Half a million pounds worth of land's being towed around Cornwall's coast.
'Nowhere Island' is an art installation to mark the Olympics.
It has travelled from the Arctic and will spend a couple of weeks here.
Critics say it is a waste of lottery money.
Organiser Michael Prior disagrees. He said: "the unique nature of 'Nowhere Island' has got people thinking about what does it mean to be a citizen, what kind of nationa would I want to form if I could start again, and those are incredibly powerful ideas to think about and we think that will be the legacy from this project.
"It's been reintroduced, it was at the heart of the Olympics originally, that it wasn't just about sport, but also about culture. We are seeing how the UK is excelling in our sport at the moment, which is fantastic. We also want to show off that we excel at our culture."
