Transversal Geographies

audio works Submerged Arts Centre Melbourne 2019

An interactive audio walk reflecting on sea level rise, islands and ocean flows. "Wherever you are and whatever you believe, we’re surrounded by the same waters that connect these islands to each other. The ocean, the Pacific, it feeds into the sea that flows into the Yarra, it tethers us together. The same water that rises in Kiribati will also rise here along this river bank. The sea will come to claim these lands just as it claims those, so many thousands of kilometers away. Our futures are held together in common by this tidal force."
