Exhibition text

‘I walked up to deck 5, same deck my cabin was supposed to be on, but the cabin was on the other side of the ship, so I had to walk down again. Down to deck 4. Trying to cross deck 4 to get up to deck 5, to my cabin. But the other side of the ship didn’t have a staircase, so I walked back and went up to deck 5, deck 6 and try to cross over but there were cabins there and I was not on the right side of the ship, so I went down again to deck 5 and stood there, there was no way to my cabin. Then a pirate came by and said I seemed lost, and I told him that I were. The pirate asked me if I would like to let him show my cabin and I said yes. I asked him what would happen if the ship started to sink, because I would not find my way out. He told me that the ship could not sink, because Jack, the captain, Jack the one-eyed, one-legged blue parrot pirate captain could not swim.’
