Sea Studies [Baltics]

Electronic Language International Festival
“Sea Studies [Baltics]” displays a series of compositions creating a portrait of the Baltic Sea and its region throughout the seasons. The images were recorded at different locations along the coast of Lithuania, Latvia and Estonia in 2010, 2011 and 2016. The artwork consists of two parts: Spring/Summer and Fall/Winter. Within each one of these parts the images are sorted by luminosity, in order to reproduce the change of time during the day. The images lead to the next season creating a cycle of changes in space.

He holds a Master’s degree in Arts from École Supérieure d’Art de Grenoble and another in Arts and Digital Media from Université Paris 1.
