Join us for an ocean take over in Wild Hope. Explore the art of Oceans Research and Climate Action Network (ORCA) members Fiona Hillary, Rebecca Olive and Jordan Lacey, who explore oceanic knowing through sound, film and virtual reality. ORCA aims to facilitate ecological exchanges that encourage new possibilities for imagining ways of living with bodies of water, to create a fluid archive of human, more-than-human and oceanic entanglements. Exploring oceans as a global commons, making themselves vulnerable to human-ocean entanglements helps them imagine new relationships and possibilities with multispecies places. Thinking with water through diverse media and in response to a range of aquatic locations, ORCA invites audiences to think about their relationships with the ocean in new, multi-sensory and multimedia ways. In this pop-up event, time-based works explore oceanic knowing through sound, film and virtual reality. No bookings necessary. This event is part of Wild Hope: Conversations for a Planetary Commons.
