Embassy of The North Sea 2019
The Embassy of the North Sea strives for such emancipation of non-humans: to see phytoplankton, gas fields and bacteria as full-fledged members of society. What are the interests of harbour porpoises? What does a hermit crab consider its territory? And how does water see the future? The Embassy researches such interests through art, science and experience.
In 2019 we will be listening to the North Sea. We will use hydrophones and underwater noise data, but will also inventorise the scents of the sea, the sounds of the sea and the many telling stories that the sea holds. The Embassy of the North Sea attempts to build a more inclusive political system with collectives of humans and non-humans.
