Sampling the Watt

The artists collected samples of watt (soil and water) from the Schillig Watt site, with sampling advice of Dr. Holger Freund, geologist at the ICBM (Wilhelmshaven) of University of Oldenburg – Germany.  Later the samples were digitally photographed at various levels of depth under an electronic microscope.  Then the numerous microscopic-images were collaged, “stitched together”, to form a large “micro-panorama” landscape of the Wattenmeer.
