German artist sails a paper boat down the Thames

275x250.jpg A German artist yesterday set sail on the Thames, in an origami paper boat which he'd folded on the river bank.

Frank Bölter had created the boat -- named To The World's End -- with the help of members of the public as part of the Drift10 art exhibition.

After carefully folding the giant sheets of paper, which were reinforced with lightweight metal poles he jumped in and sailed in the Canary Wharf docks.

It's not known exactly how long he lasted, but he expected to sail for long enough to warrant taking a newspaper… unless he planned to use that as an emergency escape vessel.
