An installation that translates wave data from weather buoys located throughout the Indian and Pacific Oceans into sound. This work offers a meditation on the unseen, intermediary space between borders: the space where countless traverse, the space that continues to rise.
Wave data is collected from buoys near Manus, Nauru and Christmas Islands—locations of Australia’s offshore detention centres—and Tuvalu, an island increasingly impacted by rising tides caused by climate change. Drawing on oceanic communication and morse code, the work creates a sensory proposition of the distress signals tied to the ocean.
