This session will introduce you to how to utilize the WATER BODIES site to participate and address a variety of issues around water bodies around the world.
We are featuring the recent work of Yolande Harris, “From a Whale’s Back”. She asks us to consider: What might it mean to be oceanic? To act in the world from a place of oceanic consciousness? From a Whale’s Back is an installation that explores the visual and sonic underwater world inhabited by whales of different species, Orcas, Humpbacks and Minke Whales, from Antarctica to the North Eastern Pacific. It uses video taken from tags used by scientists to monitor whales. Yolande collaborated with Ari Friedlaender (Ocean Sciences, UCSC) for video and data from the whale tags.
Audiences are invited to develop and add their stories and / or artwork or scientific research related to a stream, lake, sea, ocean. Communities will form around specific water bodies that will become guardians and share up to date information about the status.
