In “Bodies at Sea” we traverse the boundaries between the visible and unknown, examining the hidden complexity of our interior bodies alongside oceanic bodies of the deep sea. Through our explorations, we search and discover an uncanny, affectual and visual synergy between internal bodyscapes to marine forms and aquatic environments. Responding to a collection of visual, textual, material and audio archives across medical and marine journals and databases - we particularly trace layers that lie invisible, curious, obscure and yet to be unearthed in these mirroring environments.
