The seven audio ghost ships ‘afloat on the sea of interactive audio’. Each ship represents one aspect of the trade in enslaved Africans:

  1. 1st person experiences of the enslaved
  2. the sailors who crewed the ships and their experiences
  3. ‘The Floating Prison’: how a slave ship was constructed and organised
  4. ‘The Floating Supermarket’: what goods were traded and what they bought
  5. Enslaved Resistance
  6. (a non-narrative SFX-based audio experience tbd)
  7. ship instructions – the shipowners instructions to the Captain as to where to go, what to do when he got there, where the enslaved were to be taken etc)

There is an absolutely fantastic 3D visualization of The Marie Seraphique and L’ Aurore here: 3D SLAVE SHIP VISUALIZATION
