MAP 004 FLOODS was launched in the Maldives on the 10th of September, and the sea measuring device survived monsoons and typhoons on two islands. Through out the tests we managed to chart tide surges and sand movements, and we will now continue the project to create an array of measuring devices at selected islands. We would like to thank the people of Kurumba and Bandos for their hospitality and help with the project, The National University for their invitation to lecture and to RIAS for the sponsorship of the materials for the floating device. A very special thanks to PMO for inviting The Studio to the Maldives, for their passion and support.
At The Studio, thanks to the team that built the device, Nynne Blak, Shane Masterson, Nicolas Feihl and Hinke Majoor
