Description

The aim of this Brigstow Ideas Exchange Workshop is to bring together scientists with arts scholars and practitioners in order to think about human relations with the seafloor, a site that remains in many respects mysterious and yet, as we are increasingly becoming aware, a crucial driver of climate. How might art-forms or media (for example, sound recording or photography) or specific humanities methodologies (for example, scholarship in the field of blue humanities and animal studies) inform a scientific sense of what it means to ‘know’ the seafloor? And, at a time when concerted efforts are being made finally to map it fully (through the Nippon Foundation-GEBCO Seabed 2030 Project), how might these overlapping ways of knowing the seafloor help us to live better with it?
