Product Description

Under pressure, beneath the waves, in dazzling lights and utter darkness, we find a world in a delicate balance of interconnectedness and interdependence. The first life forms originated in the ocean. Our kinship is real. With this change of perspective, we reflect on topics like coexistence, consumerism, queerness, and the multiplicity of forms that intelligence takes. So, what can we learn from the seahorse's safety strategy? What does the hermit crab teach us about housing? Human intelligence is always the standard against which every other form of cognition is measured. The catastrophic impacts of deep-sea mining, overfishing, and climate change call this standard into question. Capitalism prioritizes practices that guarantee short-term success, despite knowing about the damage caused to oceanic systems and life on planet Earth. Balance is a dynamic process. Seventy percent of the Earth's surface is covered by water. The ocean produces fifty percent of the Earth's oxygen. From the earliest single-celled organisms to the complex web of life we see today, everything is connected to the ocean in some way. As such, any disruption to the balance of the ocean can have ripple effects throughout the entire world. How deep is your love? Dive in and submerge with us.
