Samuel Stubblefield and Joshua Borsman often use digital technology to connect individuals to broader nature and natural systems, as in the case of their work for the European Cultural Centre in Venice, Italy.

While listening to the composition, the audience is immediately connected to real events that are happening in the vastness of nature. Using the internet as the connective tissue and ocean activity as the composer, the ever-evolving experience asks the audience to rethink their relationship to the internet and nature.

The expression layers in broader society, moving nature to the front of consciousness within a context that typically denies a meaningful connection to nature.   More detail
