The Overview Effect - TENDENCIES '19

Sound and visual installations by six artists, Marjolijn Dijkman, Jerry Galle, Mikkel Rørbo, Kris Verdonck, Pierre Jean Giloux, and SEAD Collective, are brought together to provoke an overview effect, like that experienced by certain astronauts when they observe Earth from space and realise how fragile life is.
