Daniel Seiple

Making Waves

Employing an array of media including woodpiles, moving vans, weekend hobbies and plumbing, Seiple coaxes meaningful experiences out of mundane activities, friendly confrontations and concocted group activity.

Daniel Seiple and members will help power the boat, blow in the sails, cook a meal, and otherwise, spend our time fishing with magnets. What histories, relics and metallic trash lie at the bottom of Germany’s waterways? What ideas and conversations will arise during our idle time? Can we use the high-powered magnets to pull, or conversely, tether the boat? In our leisure, we will make sculptures from your salvaged materials, exhibit our underwater discoveries, record underwater sounds and images, and record our exploration of the marine landscape and shoreline terrain.
