My research explores what kinds of writing styles can make tangible the environmental crisis of the oceans, with a particular focus on the coast of South-Holland. Against the theoretical background of material ecocriticism, I am developing a site-specific writing technique which aims to bring this field as situated phenomenology into practice. Adopting a multimodal approach and crossing traditional boundaries between creative and academic writing styles and genres, I attempt to decentre human subjectivity in my writing, developing a non-anthropocentric writing style.
