Abstract

The deep seabed constitutes the most remote and inaccessible environment on the planet, terra‐nullius, terra incognita. It is a truism that whilst the oceans cover over 70 per cent of the Earth’s surface less is known about them than the moon. At the same time escalating pressures on undersea resources, make of the submaritime a new political, economic and technological frontier – a truly emergent landscape. Between 2008 and 2010, I was Leverhulme Trust Artist in Residence at the National Oceanography Centre (NOCS) Southampton, England, working alongside geologists and geophysicists involved with deep‐sea mapping. While there I made both works and interventions in situ and conducted research towards the subsequent production of a larger body of work – That Oceanic Feeling – which was shown at the John Hansard Gallery in Southampton in 2012.
