Ocean Synapse


“Ocean Synapse,” a trans-hemispheric digital film experiment and performance by Ben Burke and Dr Sarah Jane Pell between New York City and Melbourne, Australia, respectively. Burke and Pell each filmed their own scenes based on the idea of the ocean becoming a medium for information transfer in the near future. Neither knew what the other was filming until the scenes were played side by side for the first time at WaterWheel’s online symposium for World Water Day 2014. Featured here is two scenes from Burke’s side of the conversation.
