SEE VERTICAL MIGRATION!
For four consecutive nights, from September 21 – 24, 2021, the massive video projection “Vertical Migration” will fill the entire north face of the United Nations Secretariat Building in New York City. It features a siphonophore—a remarkable gelatinous creature that is one of the myriad forms of marine life that inhabit the ocean’s twilight zone, or midwater. The 505-foot (154-meter) video installation was created by the Danish artists’ collective SUPERFLEX in collaboration with Kollision, as part of SUPERFLEX’s Interspecies Assembly project for ART 2030. It will be presented on the occasion of the 76th General Assembly of the United Nations. The projection highlights the importance of biodiversity in the ocean twilight zone to global climate. Read more about it in The New York Times.
