« Seeing you laugh and not knowing what you are laughing about. Seeing you cry and wanting to cry with you. Seeing someone look at you and feeling the weight of their stare. Seeing you over there and wishing you were here with me. »

Ships in the night is a series of love-letters-as-podcasts between artworks floating in the Next Wave Festival 2016. These fictional texts and recordings respond to the aesthetic and conceptual elements of the various projects they riff off to weave strange and generative conversations between each. Below is a list of projects that Ships in the Night has responded to, and a schedule for their release through the Festival. The project also includes live readings of some of these letters at West Space, Gertrude Contemporary and the Meat Market during the Festival (see right for details).

Subscribe to Ships in the Night on Soundcloud, iTunes, or RSS, and use these letters to map your own, perhaps more obscure journey through the festival…
