in collaboration with sjoerd leijten and malu peeters

Galerie van Gelder, Amsterdam, 2016

De toekomst ligt in zee is both a book and and audiowork, for which parts of the book have been used. The audiowork is a dreamy and poetic trip through an imaginative landscape. Atmospheric sounds fill the gallery, at times imaginative, at times raw and harsh. Various voices (female, male, soft, sharp) rise up from the landscape. Three stories are told, a fourth voice brings the stories together. Like paintings-in-time the stories come to life. Like in a film the listener travels to and through places she or he has not yet been before.
