About the book:
On New Years Eve 2011 artist Bruno van den Elshout launches his camera-machine on the roof of a hotel on the beach in The Hague, the Netherlands. His goal is to capture the North Sea-horizon one year round. In the middle of an economic crisis the horizon provides us with a stable and calming counterpart, such is his thought. What began as a seemingly random idea grows through various exhibitions and beach expeditions into a major project; a work-of-art-in-book-form that reflects the adventure to which our own horizon invited us. 212 pages with 500 pictures of the horizon, rhythmically and melodically composed into a story without text.
Bruno van den Elshout works as an artist and shapes idiosyncratic art and research projects that invite essential encounters of/with/between people, ideas and worlds, with the intention of exploring and practising constructive and sustainable ways of living and working together.
