Catharina van Eetvelde addresses ideas of cross-fertilization in her animated work Cruise. Fittingly, Cruise itself is a product of cross-fertilization; van Eetvelde's animated drawings blend with the words of poet Abigail Lang to form a meditation on the meanings, both literal and figurative, of land and sea.
