“A breaking wave, made of light and sound, in the desert – a reminder of a powerful past, yet also a chimaera, a vision, something that is so ephemeral it isn’t really there. This contrast between massive power and incredible delicacy is one we wanted to explore. The symbol of a breaking wave is clearly a powerful one yet, as with much of our work, the fact that it is there through digital interventions makes it more transient, temporary, liminal. It’s not really there, it’s not really a wave, yet it resonates with the powerful forces of geological terraforming, the climate, the planet. Its transience reflects the seeming permanence yet real fragility of the environment.” – Excerpt from Squidsoup’s website.
