interactive transmedia installation for 7 biopolymer objects on ship line, audio composition for 3 static and 4 dynamic audio channels, 96 speakers, digital processing


Since my artist residencies at the Norwegian Sea (2017/2018) and the Baltic Sea (2018/2019/2020) marine organisms, their formal composition, biochemistry and taxonomy became my focus of interest. For this project, I investigated the potential of sea weed for biopolymer production as an alternative to petrochemicals. It led to the development of a biopolymer based structure resembling tang growing on ship line.

The colour scale of the algae-shaped elements ranged from shades of sepia and umber, which are attached to anchor ropes. The arrangement of the objects is based on submarine live studies of floating tang in the sea. The composition of floating tang connect formally with the spatial movement of sound, which is integrated in each object.
