Seasynthesis at Life Time, MU Artspace

Art, Exhibition, Research December 4, 2017

The first result of my collaboration with NIOZ and IMARES for the Bio Art & Design Awards 2017 is now on show at MU Artspace in Eindhoven as part of the exhibition Life Time!

Seasynthesis is an ongoing research project that aims to provide access to the sea
through listening. As sound travels five times faster through water compared to air, we gain a valuable understanding of the activity of both man, aquatic life and the planet, over a vast distance. At MU Artspace, field recordings of the North Sea have been translated into an eight channel, immersive seascape of sound. More information about this project can be found here.

Life Time presents the winning projects of the Bio Art and Design Award 2017, developed in collaboration with leading Dutch researchers in the life sciences, alongside several recent works that share a focus on the theme of time. The works reflect on, demonstrate, or even contest advances in life sciences research. They also probe time and life in the realms of the oceans, under the earth, in our minds, and in our cells.
