For whatever we lose, it’s always ourselves we find in the sea.PICAR
The viewer’s interaction and engagement in this piece, “For whatever we lose, it’s always ourselves we find in the sea” (2022), serves as a metaphor for the interdependence between humans, the oceans and its coral structures. The piece at once alludes to a society deeply dependent on capitalist progress, and how unaware we are of the high levels of waste we produce in our oceans and bleaching we trigger on our corals as a result. The imperfections in the piece make aware of the damaging reality of global warming, particularly the human impact is having on our oceans. The jarring flow creates a forceful reality for the viewer in that they hopefully become aware of the wider role humanity plays in environmental destruction.
