OCEAN LAB : CAIRNS DEVELOPMENT
A Climate Collaboration in partnership with TippingPoint Australia
Coinciding with our June 2010 tour of Yakumo Honjin to Cairns as part of On Edge Festival, Aphids’ artists began the first stage of creative development in Atelier Edens’ OCEAN LAB, an underwater concert created and performed on the Great Barrier Reef.
In the development of the performance work Aphids artists will undertake research into coral spawning and the effects of climate change on the population growth of the coral in the surrounding tropical waters. They will also investigate how this phenomenon of reproduction is situated in the broader marine context and the relationships that exist between the various affecting elements.
