Part of the WAVES series.

Inspired by the well established history of both artistic and scientific study on oceans and oceanic waves, WAVES is a data dramatisation of complex ocean simulations, distilled and re-imagined in the form of abstract visuals and sounds. An ongoing series of studies that investigate the tension and delicate balance between the immense power and incredible fragility of the oceans; simultaneously mighty yet delicate; calming yet terrifying; graceful yet violent; a symbol of fear, danger and death as well as hope, freedom and life.

This particular edition was made during the aftermath of the tragic November 2015 Paris killings, and the consequent public and political thirst to bomb Syria in retaliation, which in turn would inevitably trigger an opposing retaliation, and fuel the vicious back-and-forth cycle of violence.
