 Global Islands Project -- ongoing series of multi-media pdf-ebooks, field-recordings and films-- a pastoral, pictorial and phonic elicitation of island parameters. An intensive examination of small islands and their paradigmatic solutions to globalism... Ethnographically a shared world of historical experience -- not the romanticized and divided universe of them and us. Your feudal-world is based on mutual relief at your common corruption. Maybe some cultures are based on even worse. But that wouldn't change the bad faith of it and as years go by, you wake at night in terror of your whole life being an act of bad faith, where everything is self-interest and nothing more, where every human interaction is driven by a silent, even subconscious calculation of some ulterior motive, to the point that a sea of bad faith has taken over your whole life, there's no small island left from which you can even try to build a bridge of good faith, because even that effort becomes suspect, even good faith is nothing but self-interested, even altruism is nothing but solipsistic, even your professed agonizing right here right now is nothing but a gesture, made to the conscience in order to assure it that it exists. Island 1.0 is Ambergris Caye, Belize; Island 2.0 is Koh Si Chang, Thailand; Island 3.0 is Lamu, Kenya; Island 4.0 is Narikel Jingira, Bangladesh; Island 5.0 is Isla Mais, Nicaragua; Island 6.0 are The Grenadines, West Indies; Island 7.0 is Hateruma (Yaeyama), Japan; Island 8.0 is Waya (Yasawa), Fiji. Support enables investigation of additional islands and pursuant publications... This request funds a Mediterranean Island 9.0 to be completed hopefully in 2013. I stay on each island for a minimum of three months, learning the language/culture and daily-life, so I'll again need several thousand dollars for this one: likely Kerkennah Islands, Tunisia. Please contribute generously. I welcome suggestions of future islands!
