Under the Surface

With Stroom festival 
Under the Surface is an audiovisual installation revolving around underwater recordings in the river Waal. These recordings have been made by Frank Collas, environmental researcher at the Radboud University. The installation makes the relation between the natural life in the river and the sound pollution from the shipping industry tangible by creating an immersive digital environment.

From organic waste to building materials.
