We presented our research on the Maasgod Voice in a live version in form of a performative installation for one person a time in various locations in Rotterdam. We used as amplifiers the gates of Rotterdam taxi boat questioning the relation between public and private access to the river.

“In the middle of the river we float on our bellies, halfway between the bottom and the surface. At night, with the full moon and the clear sky, we look at the hulls, backlit, they go through us.”
