Single-channel video, painting, 360 x 275 cm
A real-time projection displays footage of a transoceanic crossing via the Panama Canal. The vessel surges into view enframed by water, but otherwise decontextualized. A few elements guide the viewer's reading of the work, which articulates natural scenery with human action.
