Natural History

Description (in English): 

An interactive animation (depicting a map of islands and a stretch of the sea) is screened on top of a model of an archipelago. The numbers on the map that signifies the waters' depth are clickable, for each number a short poetic text emerges. When clicking one of the islands, the screening goes dark and the selected island is lit with a green light. A longer text-animation is played. The texts are like notes from a distant future, with elements of slow violence, something lurking beneath the surface. The spectator chooses beginning and endpoint in the viewing - depending on how much time you give the piece the underlying storyline becomes clearer. It is nearly impossible to experience the work identically two times, to follow the same sequence of numbers.
