Clapotis (French for ”lapping”) is a series of works studying the movement of waves. For the purpose, I built instruments that create images of waves both under and above the surface.
Wave screen makes surface wave patterns visible. The results are photographs and a video of the screen.
Wave tracer records the pulse of the sea in form of a graph on paper.
Storm in a Teacup transfers underwater changes of pressure to oscillating water levels in a U-shaped tube.
In Wavescapes the oscillation of the sea surface is recorded as a photogram directly on photographic paper.
