‘Thirst’ is an audiovisual installation, which portraits stormy Atlantic Ocean. The work was inspired by individual experience of facing the danger of tempest – an experience that can hardly be shared without visual component. Technically speaking, the installation is an about fifty minutes documentary with 2K resolution.

The installation of the visually and sonically expressive marine landscape was produced in the Faroe Islands as single-shot take. Storm was shot with camera, positioned on a rock at human height. The work is presented as a large-scale film installation in a dark space. The projection screen is positioned at floor level to offer audience an experience similar to that of attending an ocean coast. Therefore, the camera view coincides with a human point of view
The audiovisual installation allows entering the world of troubled waters, wind, noise and rain to observe and listen to it from a distance, which is impossible in the natural circumstances when admiration is replaced with fear.
