From June 18 to July 15 we show the exhibition FLOW (Active Heave Compensation) at our new venue at Oudezijds Voorburgwal 131.
The exhibition at Oudezijds Voorburgwal brings together two art projects in progress by Edwin Zwakman and Frank Havermans. The two artists imagine, each in their own, distinctive way, a future in which we move our habitat to the water. Where Havermans creates a series of scale models to investigate the possibilities of floating urbanism, Zwakman employs augmented reality techniques to depict his vision of a marine urban future.
Both artworks by Havermans and Zwakman are new steps in long-term, artistic research projects that look ahead to the inevitable sea level rise that awaits us. How can we adapt our living environment to the rising water? Will we continue to build higher and higher dikes? Or do we go with the flow? The sub-title of the exhibition (Active Heave Compensation) refers to a technique used in the offshore industry to reduce the influence of waves upon offshore operations.
