SonarMies: 'Liquid Strata' by Entangled Others, Daphne Xanthopoulou and Joan LlortInstallation
Unveiling the hidden world of the Twilight Zone - the depths of the ocean, where light barely penetrates

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. 


Together, the group have used scientific data in bold new ways to reveal the hidden dynamics and layers of this forgotten world. Take a dive with them into the depths at the Mies van der Rohe Pavilion, just across from Sónar by Day, throughout the festival. 


On Friday 15th June, all of the installation’s creators will take to the stage for 'Diving into ‘Liquid Strata’, explaining how they conceived and developed the project. 


From 13 to 15 June

Opening times: From 10:00 to 22:00
