The ocean’s paradox is that it’s both an imagined and a technological space, full of myths and metaphors alongside data streams and extraction infrastructure. In this talk, curator Jayne Wilkinson discusses Signals in the Sea, the 2019 Pattison Outdoor Billboards Public Art Project, featuring works by Christina Battle, Eshrat Erfanian, and Susan Schuppli that consider the surfaces, depths, and virtual spaces of the ocean. Wilkinson discusses how these projects, and others, address the urgencies of the ocean by exploring the intersection of environmentalism with digital technologies of seeing and sensing.
Followed on Wed Apr. 10 by a screening program as part of DIM Cinema.
The Capture Speaker Series is presented in partnership with Inform Interiors
