Imagine. You are halfway a transatlantic flight and look down on the vast sea nine kilometre below you. You see nothing but sea. What are the odds two things will meet there in the middle of this 76.762.000 km² territory? Zero. Or maybe not? This question was reason for artist Lotte Geeven to put things to the test. She brought in an international team of scientists to search for an answer. Two sensory robots named 127109 & 127110 where brought to live and deployed in the currents on two sides of the Atlantic Ocean. At Momart Geeven presents the first part of the project: a multimedia installation consisting of a sound scape inspired by the journey of these objects.
