Abstract

Pathways of the Sea is about thinking and making with water in the encounter of the coastal mediterranean landscape in Liguria and its multiple non-human and human agencies and interweavings. The thesis is placed at the crossroads between heritage, new media technologies, creativity, aesthetics, memory, time and environment. At the core is a series of artworks in different media: film, installation and textiles. Poetic and temporal entanglements that hold together differential perspectives and multispecies becoming in the sensuous capture of landscapes. The works find companionship with prehistoric molluscs, plants in lost landscapes, nocturnal moths and moonlight. Wandering through and weaving together archives, cosmicomic literature, marine biology, naturalist collections, paleolithic graves, Victorian travel writings, science stories, abandoned swimming pools, industrial ruins and much more. In doing this, the project turns to modes of worlding the world through multiple differences inherent in various theoretical perspectives of feminist, posthumanist, environmental and new materialist studies. In particular, the project finds solace in water and sea as planes for thinking time, species and matter as more-than-human inheritances and thinking media practice as an apparatus of making difference. Pathways of the Sea is performative enactments of heritage landscapes. Portraying temporal criss-crossings and unfolding narratives where diverse human and non-human life and time spheres bend into and through each other. In these acts of landscape entanglement, the thesis opens up a discussion of how to think heritage as a naturecultural remembrance, a futuring that affirmatively trouble who we are and what we are to come.
