Every day during a summer month you could travel by boat to the lighthouse "Goodnight" in Karlskrona archipelago and listen to the story of doctor Alain Bombard and his adventures crossing the Atlantic Ocean, surviving only on raw fish and seawater. Using sound, installations and images a story was created using the labyrinthine rooms of the lighthouse. All the windows where covered with image-transparencies, which represented Dr. Bombard´s hallucinatory daydreams and longings. On the top-floor you could lie down in a hammock and listen to the end of the story.
