Nowhere Island

Could Nowhereisland be our 487th British island? Well, no. Although it visited British waters this summer it is not ours to own. The artwork by Alex Hartley became the world's newest nation with a citizenship open to all. It started life as a rock in Svalbard and after sailing 2000 miles to the south coast of England is now nothing more than 23,003 fragments divided between its global citizens. Unfortunately, we never set foot upon it, but T is officially citizen No. 1542.
