Our imagining of the ocean can be traced from Odysseus and Poseidon, through kerosene-coloured "1900", Jacques Perrin's camera, to the giant kingfish and tiger whales in the BBC's Blue Planet. Voyaging ambitions and thalassophobia (a fear of the sea) are intertwined in these images, laying out gradients from azure blue to pitch black. The ocean itself is a haunting dream.
Coincidentally, fluxes and turbulences of information lie beneath the surface of a screen. The old analogy between "information" and "ocean" persists ,while the emerging "dark web" is subtly reminiscent of the Abyssopelagic Zone hidden way down beneath the sea surface. In some sense, the mysterious ocean stimulating one's instinctive desire for exploration, and the screen representing a current version of a living interface, seem to be the reflection of each other.
In the exhibition, "Facing the Ocean", seven artists are invited to tell stories of the ocean. The works might extend to the unseen elements or untouched history of the ocean, or plunge into the temperaments of the ocean's breath.
The screens face the ocean, with tranquility.
