Sightings-Sitings is a project that explores the locations of the North Sea, the area between La Manche and the Norwegian Sea. The initial methods of movement and observation are walking, walking on seabed during low tide, observing the sky, stars, tides, architecture, organisms, meteorological forecasts. The artists record movement with photography, sound, text, bodies. Thus, they collect textual material, experiment with narrative structure, voice and agency, explore potential vocabulary of non-human subjects, record random human statements, write down everyday life and experiment with multi-subject positions, unclear positions, undefined, non-subjects.
