the Exhibition

2A worldwide travelling exhibition with original art about WATER in the broadest sense with emphasis on art and the Atlantic Ocean.


3An very important part of the websites is the resources file. Numbers in the texts in the book, exhibition and in the websites link to resources with much more information.

'Sail' around the world in 80 pages

4A continuous book of 80 pages in a harmonica form (accordion book folding), the reverse printed with etchings, drawings and infographics. Book is handbound in a piece of original sail from sy-GEMINI.


Here are some examples of the art-works; you can follow progress of the exhibition on my Facebook page.

art photography with a twist
The exhibition does not show 'just' art photography. Some of the prints are made in layers or are combined in such a way that they become 3-dimensional and unica.
