Diving into ‘Liquid Strata’ by Entangled Others, Daphne Xanthopoulou and Joan LlortTalk
Friday 1416:00 - 16:30
Unveiling the hidden world of the Twilight Zone, the depths part of the ocean

For SonarMies 2024, oceanographer Joan Llort, together with artists Entangled Others Studio and Daphne Xanthopoulou, have created ‘Liquid Strata’, an AV installation that explores one of the important ecosystems on the planet: the ocean depths. 


The Twilight Zone - named for the lack of light that penetrates the gloom - is the largest marine ecosystem on the planet, populated by millions of tiny sea creatures that migrate to the surface every night to feed. This vital ‘carbon sink’ - helping absorb atmospheric CO2 - is increasingly threatened by deep-sea mining and industrial fishing. 


At Stage+D, the group will describe how they conceived and developed ‘Liquid Strata’, rethinking traditional methods of presenting scientific data, and shining a light on how they were able to uncover the hidden dynamics of this forgotten world. 


Don’t forget, you can also visit Liquid Strata at the Mies van der Rohe Pavilion, just across from Sónar by Day, throughout the festival.
