Five tiny installations are presented in the back of the Beam Bus Satellietgroep uses for the open air 'Cinema at Sea'. Looking through the rear window you can watch the mini cinema’s he created. In each work Chris presented an approach which focuses on the cycle (recycling) of natural sources of energy connected to cultural references. The unfinished quality of the presentation seems clumsy, but is in fact a subtle way to refer to the honesty of his research. It gives the viewer ‘tools’ to connect with the overall sense of vulnerability a person can experience in connection to the vastness of the sea.
The work of Chris has a reference to the well known ‘Droste effect’, but is in fact the opposite. The ‘Droste effect’ - an image within an image within an image – is a strange loop of a self-referential system that ‘zooms in’. Chris does the opposite by presenting very small objects that ‘zoom out’. His work deals with trying to understand the immeasurable space of the sea by representing toy like miniature worlds. By creating tiny movies - projected by mini beamers imbedded in small objects with a comprehensive size - Chris gives the viewer the opportunity to connect to the indefinite.
