Deep White Sea, is an exploration of the theme using artworks, photographs and sound to create a high definition digital moving image artwork. Inspired by images of The Paleontological Institute, Russian Academy of Sciences, Moscow, we have utilized scientific information, cross media constructed objects and sound to convey a poetic interpretation of the White Sea.
