The artwork 'suspended soil' (2021) is an HTML online fragment made by from Doggerland is a collaborative practice by Gemma Gore (UK) and Jo Willoughby (NL). Meditating on Doggerland as the site that connects us, physically and elementally, we utilise materials and immaterials to connect across the borders, time and distance. 'suspended soil' is an online work with a silent video and an animated gif. Filmed between two locations UK/NL, the video is a form of conversation throughout these shores where the sea meets the lands. Using a soil-based watercolour paint, created from earth collected whilst walking together across physical locations and linked through digital media, the gif is constructed from documentation of hand-painted words, assembled as a poem of sorts. 'suspended soil' utilises CSS code as a means for the digital elements to coalesce. The colours used within the background gradient are CSS colours with names that reference the sea: “seashell” and “seagreen”. 'suspended soil' is made using open source app Twinery.
