Pelagic ocean fish

SaltWaveAfter finalizing the Seascape panorama in 2012, our fascination for sea routes, especially the routes of fisher boats, only grew. We feel that the oceanic space for us is a great subject for our work. Given the opportunity, we would love to make more versions, exploring the oceans and the differences in route patterns of fisher boats as dependent on fishing methods and fish species, as well as ways of depicting the routes and exploring the medium of the panorama.
First fisherman’s (in this case woman’s) track that was the starting point for our oceanic fascination.

Artistic motivation
The sea is a blank sheet of paper where ships emerge and disappear. The choreography of movement of fisher boats is an unique expression of economic activities, technologies and traditions, the weather and the fish species one is after.

Practical information
We did some international research already, for example in the neighbourhood of fishermen in Makoko, Nigeria; Mombassa harbour, Kenia; Fraserburgh harbour, Scotland and in Razanj, Kroatie. We are very open to be invited to make new versions of this work.


Thanks for that the other thing that chaps me

Is no one seems to have any concern or anger that there are rivers of oil streaming miles through the strata of water from the ocean bed on upwards.
It's as if only the "coast" matters, not the marine life out in the sea be it jellyfish, zooplankton, and other pelagic wildlife.
It's like, out of sight, out of mind.
I live in Alaska, we still have oil 20yrs later on those beaches if you dig down a foot. And Exxon's spill was likely half the size. A *minimum* 35 thousand birds were killed by Exxon (likely a gross underestimate). Not to mention a thousand otters, and all the whales, porpoises and other critters
