The exhibition will depict a projected animation of the live tide level, accompanied by submerged sounds of the river. The aim of the piece is to further connect the river with local neighbourhoods, communities and people in the area. The climate crisis is changing the rhythm with which global tides ebb and flow. Current tide tables, which forecast tides down to the minute many years into the future, may prove to be inaccurate due to an increase of flash flooding, droughts, and rising sea levels. Ebb & Flow highlights where we are with local tides at the present moment in the timeline of tidal history. Sound composition in collaboration with Artur Vidal.
