Artist LINDA ALTERWITZ’s project ONCE OCEAN examines both the inner workings of our bodies and its interconnections to the rhythms of our natural world.
To create this interdisciplinary artwork, data-driven signatures of our brains and hearts in the form of clinical diagnostic tests (MRI, EEG and EKG) are woven within memory, creating a unique visual language that offers a remembrance that our human rhythms are inextricably bonded with the energy of our environment.
The final objects presented to the public are portrayed as a unified world infused with subjectivity yet governed by science.
ONCE OCEAN evokes an introspective journey, one that intertwines subjective beauty with objective knowledge, bearing witness to a complicated and challenging relationship that exists between man and the environment.
