How Can I See What I Can’t See?

Main Article Content

Emily Tidey
Becky Cameron


Through the Art + Oceans process, both authors explored the complexity and immensity of the relatively unknown world beneath the waves. By focusing on a small area in Otago Harbour, this project enabled Becky to expand her artistic investigations as she looked beyond her more traditional work on the land and began to consider the marine environment. Emily 
found that the collaboration served as a useful reminder that each field trial she undertakes will add to the progression of her marine mapping project, that multiple angles should be considered and that these may be combined in ways yet unrealised. For both of authors, this collaboration added
a new dimension to their ongoing investigations in the ocean.
