Artificial Ocean

Sound is vital when talking about marine life. It is the sensory cue that travels the farthest through water. It is used to communicate, interpret and explore the environment. But now, ocean soundscapes are changing incredibly fast because of massive increases in anthropogenic noise. Be it water littering, air or noise pollution, humans are responsible for all the decay taking over life itself. Artificial Ocean is an interactive sound installation that unravels the effects of our toxic positioning in the Anthropocene.
