The video exhibition is part of the cultural program of SAIL Amsterdam. On August 10, 2015 Sunde stood a whole tidal cycle (thirteen hours) in the sea at Katwijk; the water rose up to her neck and receded to her ankles. Over 40 members of the public joined her, sometimes for hours. Jonas de Witte filmed the entire performance and the completed durational video piece will premiere from 19-23 August at Pakhuis de Zwijger, Marineterrein, Oude Kerk en de Appel arts centre.
