by Joy Kimono June 28, 2016
Joy is the youngest of six children of her father, who is a retired naval architect, ship builder, ship broker, and a ship owner with a shipping business. As an architect, she was biased towards anything related to the sea. Hence, when she got the opportunity to enter a boathouse design competition in 1996 and, with some luck, won third . Her thesis in 2001 deployed shipping containers as homes for GlobalNomads and later won her an international Grand Prix.
Though her childhood dream to move from the sea onto land anchored her career as an architect, Joy remained a nomad at heart. And when she was offered the opportunity to work on a one-of-a-kind art film, made entirely of cinemagraphs, about a true story of the greatest pirate in history of piracy, she didn’t give it a second thought.
