We explore how Oceans in Transformation brings together a multiplicity of conceptualizations of the ocean. The ocean is a sensorium: it records the transformations of the Earth in its complex dynamics, and it inscribes back into the forms of life its own cycles. This workshop explores new ways to connect the multiple ways of knowing and studying the ocean as it is entering a new phase of its history—the Anthropocene. Remote sensing data is a way to compose new images that connect Earth System transformations with the fluctuations and oscillations of world-systems, the cohesive human structures that form contemporary territories.

John Palmesino (CH/UK) and Ann-Sofi Rönnskog (FI): John Palmesino and Ann-Sofi Rönnskog , are architects and urbanists. They have established Territorial Agency, an independent organisation that combines architecture, research and advocacy to address the complex transformations of the Anthropocene epoch. They have been awarded the STARTS 21 Grand prize of the European Commission honouring Innovation in Technology, Industry and Society stimulated by the Arts. Recent projects include Oceans in Transformation, in collaboration with TBA21–Academy, Sensible Zone, the Museum of Oil with Greenpeace, Anthropocene Observatory with HKW Haus der Kulturen der Welt, and Plan the Planet, an open seminar at the AA.
