  • Floating cinema (installation, 2018)

    In commission of NDSM, The Netherlands Institute for Sound and Vision (RE:VIVE)

    "For Amsterdam MuseumNight 2018, a special collaboration between NDSM and The Netherlands Institute for Sound and Vision (RE:VIVE) will bring a floating historical experience to the canals of Amsterdam that poetically re-imagines the life of one of the most famous ocean liners ever built in Amsterdam, the m.s. Oranje. Visual artist Sjoerd Martens and musician Thessa Torsing (upsammy) will debut a new audiovisual piece aboard a floating cinema that transforms the history of the m.s. Oranje. The piece will be a creative, immersive experience of this famous ocean liner that served as a wartime hospital ship, refuge transport and luxury cruise ship that burst into flames twice and ultimately met its demise at the bottom of the Pacific Ocean."
