The Tristans is an ongoing, multi-faceted project involving direct discussion and collaboration with the people of Tristan Da Cunha - the most remote inhabited place in the world. Tristan Da Cunha is an active volcanic island no bigger than Manhattan, located in the middle of the Pacific ocean, a 14-day boat voyage away. The Tristans are British, using the pound sterling and the charming postcode of TDCU 1ZZ for the whole island - there are 250 of them, and seven surnames. Tristan Da Cunha now stands on the frontline in the battle against cultural hybridization and postmodernism, as they cling to the post-colonial remnant that is their island.
