The premise for the book was to be sensitive to the original manifestation of the project as a website. Our response was to make a book which presents both the artist’s personal selection of images and also the extreme density of the image archive. The structure of the book takes queues from the website; the book is split in 2, divided by a 2nd cover. The 1st section documents the project set-up. The 2nd section exposes the technological system which creates the Seascapes, presenting thousands of images taken from the archive. Each page represents 1 day. 10 colour plates appear at regular intervals throughout the archive.
