In March 2017, as the opening stanza to an extended collaboration with Fathomers, artist Michael Jones McKean engaged the remains of the Teignmouth Electron, the sailing vessel commissioned by amateur yachtsman Donald Crowhurst for his failed and tragic attempt to circle the earth, alone, without stopping, in the 1968–1969 Golden Globe Race.
Beached for decades on a remote island in the Caribbean, the Electron has long served as mystery and muse for artists, filmmakers, writers, sailors, historians and many others. For Michael, who has owned the boat since 2007, the vessel operates as a siren-like talisman — a ruin now morphed into relic.
Joined by a team of researchers and Fathomers, Michael traveled to Cayman Brac to create an archaeological record of the decaying Electron, capturing comprehensive photo and video documentation, as well as digital 3D scans of the site, with the intention of contributing these and other research materials to the rich public well of Electron mythology. We also isolated and preserved a select fragment of the boat for an important project action to come.
Since then, we’ve been deep-fathoming — in the larger scheme of Michael’s project — with co-conspirators across the globe: paleophysiologists in Arizona; materials engineers in Washington; archaeologists in Virginia; filmmakers in London and New York; marine surveyors in Malta; drone operators; photogrammetry specialists; Milton Melvin Croissant III.
