SouRCe; The Soil We Live On

SouRCe; The Soil We Live On

SouRCe is an annual series of audiovisual artworks in which multimedia artist Victor Dissel and light artist Emanuel Nijkerk explore the elements of nature.

In SouRCe; The Soil We Live On, the audience gets transported to the hidden world beneath our feet. With the use of unconventional recording techniques, such as dug-in microphones and macro cameras, the earth's element is captured in a new light. Together, the earth layers, fungal textures, tree trunks and torn up root structures are brought together in an audiovisual composition. The installation consists of a 6-meter-high LED wall and 4,000 kilos of real soil. With this, SouRCe explores the intersection of digital and natural perception, aiming to reimagine our connection to nature.

The artwork is part of Into the Woods festival on Friday 20th and Saturday 21th October (ticketed), and is free accessible on Sunday 22th October during ADE Hangover at the NDSM.
