Kim Munro: The oceans and the centuries
Nature in Dark 2
The oceans and the centuries
The oceans and the centuries (a phrase borrowed from Roland Barthes) presents related thoughts and questions from science, literature and personal experience. Layered with footage of water, its inhabitants and the sounds of the moons of Jupiter, this video explores notions of oceanic origins, sentience and knowability, asking the question: what is our relationship to this thing called ocean?
The source material for The oceans and the centuries stems from Yaringa Marine National Park and was provided by Parks Victoria and Museum Victoria.
