Weaving together recordings, maps, and objects collected along the way, If We Were the Sea examines the complexity and fragility of the sea that both connects and divides us. The exhibition explores the environment aboard a 100,000-ton freighter and the experiences of its thirty crew members as they make their passage across invisible time zones, navigating the demands between camaraderie and interdependence, expansiveness and isolation.
Inside a familiar piece of Vancouver’s identity as a port city, If We Were the Sea asks us to reflect on what ultimately sustains us and how we navigate the hidden dependencies in our changing environment.
