The Dazzle Ferry is a collaboration between the Biennial, Tate Liverpool, Mersey Maritime Museum, Mersey Ferries and Sir Peter Blake. It’s a working example of a dazzle ship.
Last year the Biennial launched the Dazzle Ship Edmund Gardner, a static example of a dazzle ship in the dry dock by the Museum of Liverpool. The Dazzle Ferry is a fully working ship and will be sailing until December 2016. How awesome is that? You can now razzle dazzle ferry across the Mersey.
You have to see the ferry in action. It’s beautiful and absolutely crazy. Take a trip on it too. If you go during commuter hours, before 9:30am, you can get a return ticket for less than £3. Do it. Dec 2016 will come around sooner than you think and I just know I’m going to miss this ship on the Mersey when it goes in for a paint job. I’ll commute the fudge out of it until then. It’s the best way of getting to the studio and I’m also working on a project about the ferry. More of that later.
