Foresea is taking part in Acclimatize, an online exhibition targeting climate change, organized by Moderna Museet. Be inspired by different projects and ideas on climate change, and take a look at our movie!
Today is already the last day of Oerol Festival and also the last day that our installation will be present. We are welcoming the last visitors and are looking forward to the final appearance of our project.
Tonight after our last dinner on the festival terrain we will start with breaking down the installation. With pain in our hearts we will cut off all the ropes. Tomorrow the firm Trip Hek will take away all the steel poles, something we are really happy with since it will be quite a difficult task to take the 6 meter high poles out of the ground. Before we start breaking down we will make some final pictures to capture the final appearance of the installation, these will follow soon.
Don’t worry, you are not getting rid of us yet. The next couple of weeks we will post the conclusions we got out of our data and also you will see the process of us working on our exhibition and booklet!
For now we would already like to thank everyone who helped us building the sea of ropes. A special thanks goes to the people of Kaap Hoorn who were so hospitable the last couple of weeks. They let us work in their restaurant all of the days and they gave us a lot of mental support. We really enjoyed the team feeling we had with them!
At last, some beautiful pictures of our installation. Enjoy!!:)
Finishing the day with a beautiful sunset at the beach of Terschelling
Foresea was invited to participate in the talkshow of Paulien at the Oerol festival! With a lot of audience, Jean-Pierre and Jolien were interviewed about our project. It was a nice conversation and many people of the audience were enticed to have a look at our project. The song about Landschapsarchitecture was the finishing touch! Listen here to a short version of their talk, including the song.
Oerol has started! Since Wednesday we worked really hard to get our installation on the beach. It was an ambitious task, but we managed!!! Today is the first day the visitors can visit our installation. The visitors are already passing by and little by little a new sea level is arising.
The final preparations are in full swing, only two days left before we leave to Terschelling!
The festival is getting closer and in the studio there is a mix between anticipation and nervousness in the air. Everyone is eager to leave the studio and start digging into the sand. But there are still a lot left to do and many questions still left to solve. Will all the material arrive on time? How do we best explain our ideas to the visitors? How do we prevent 40 kilometers of thread to tangle up together? And what will the weather be like?
60 questions are being written, revised and rewritten again. The time it takes to drill a hole in a steel pole is being timed to fine-tune the tight schedule for the construction. Different angles of attaching threads to hooks are being tested and calculations for the tides are being made. The studio is a tangle of blue threads, sticks, drawings and creativity.
