Slide projection loop, 80 perforated images in a slide projection carousel with timer, 1 original image (Mediterranean Sea)
Variable projection size

A sound that follows the transformation of the sea through its increasing holes. The first image of what seems to be a friendly inviting sea is followed by its repetition with first few and then increasing holes perforating the sea, creating a void.
