SIGNALS is a collaborative project between artists Nicolas Sassoon and Rick Silva focusing on immersive audio-visual renderings of altered seascapes. Sassoon and Silva share an on-going theme in their individual practices: the depiction of wilderness and natural forms through computer imaging. Created by merging their respective fields of visual research, SIGNALS features oceanic panoramas inhabited by unnatural substances and enigmatic structures. The project draws from sources such as oceanographic surveys, climate studies and science-fiction to create 3D-generated video works and installations that reflect on contamination, mutation and future ecologies.
