A BREAK INTO THE OCEAN
elia abd el nour
With the rise of water level across the globe, land became a scarce resource in need of protection and humans had to adapt to a new way of living in the Ocean. A new lifestyle emerged on the water and under. The machine is a group of units bundled together through a system of floating decks, jumping boards and water space.
As we dive underwater, we see the units creating a small community, scattered in the ocean, all disconnected but connected, dispersed yet assembled, with submarines swimming around from unit to another, beside the sea creatures, invading their habitat and creating a new one. The ocean turns into a museum, recording traces of the past water levels, units anchored down, counting the new depth of water as water level continues to rise, and machine continues to float.
