The Zandmotor is a man-made landscape that will dissolve in about 15 years into sea, beach and dunes. Right now, how can we sense its wide-open space and the movement it contains in all its intensity? The body is always located in relation to the space that contains it. Space is something that is experienced in motion that first makes it appearance through movement. During this research period body and space are the materials that are set into relation to each other. At the Zandmotor we will explore and develop wearable interfaces to create new sensory relationships in which our inner landscape will converge with the landscape that surrounds us. The interfaces will stage us in a contemporary drama in which we are part of and separate from our environment.

Landing Sites is a project by Cocky Eek in collaboration with Matthijs Munnik, assisted by Geartsje van der Zee. The outcomes of the artist-in-residence at the Zandmotor will be presented at the Oerol Festival 2017 and at the Zandmotor itself in September. Landing Sites is a coproduction of Schweigman& and Satellietgroep. Stroom Den Haag generously supports Landing Sites.
