In High Seas, Jennifer and Kevin McCoy simulate the sensation of being aboard a vessel in rough waters using camera, video projection, and a Titanic ship model. The installation was originally designed for a model for a model of the Dreadnought, a packet ship that transported goods and passengers long distances but which ultimately wrecked off the tip of South America in 1896, now in the collection of the Addison Gallery of American Art. For this installation of High Seas, a model of the Titanic replaces the Dreadnought. The video projection allows you to imaging the experience on board during a sever storm at sea.
