This soundwork, or ‘expanded sound cinema’, presents ever-shifting perspectives on the sea. A force beyond measure that can break and kill, that exceeds human proportions by far; but there’s also the soothing effect of waves in permanent motion. The extraordinary impact of 360º/Seascapes is based on the evocative combination of visuals and sound.
Visual artist Rob Moonen made the video for the first installation in the series, Seascapes. It is a topic that has fascinated Moonen for quite some time now: on his travels he films and takes pictures of the sea. This acts as a counterpart to his regular work, which pivots around a concern for people. In these seascapes he turns his back on society and focuses on an environment that eludes human interference.
