aground

A sailing vessel hangs in suspension, cut off from foreground and background. Not a video game, the Aground Series is slow cinema or tv: nothing happens in the sense of plot or an open gaming narrative. Instead, the screen frames a middle ground with subtle shifts in color and motion. Sparked by J.M.W. Turner’s The Slave Ship, the Aground Series is as much about politics as it is aesthetics, and how they occupy the same space. Current weather and historic data specific to the Atlantic passage further shapes the scene.
