Over two days in early November, German artist  Frank Bölter  staged two touching performances of World’s End . The performances, in which the public helped Frank fold and launch a paper boat, before he sailed away in it, grabbed the imagination of London and the rest of the world where it was picked up by the media from Canada to China.
