Ocean

"...Circling, spiralling, crossing lines
describe complex systems -
physical, biological, emotional.

Human hands create
to suit human desires

Phytoplankton create
most oxygen we breathe.

More C02 seeps into the water.
than many organisms can bear.

C02 acidifies water.

Is the problem human?

Can the solution be human?

Connectivity is felt
and measured.

Oceans warm
sea levels rise."

 

Lisa Roberts with Susan Anderson, Coordinator of Linchpin - the ocean project and krill biologist Steve Nichol

Oceanic Living Data was begun in 2012. This story evolves to reflect growing knowledge. Key scientific data come from the University of Technology Sydney and the Australian Antarctic Division. Iconography comes from visual and performing artists around the world.

The first iteration was presented at the 2012 Antarctic Treaty Consultative Meeting at CCAMLR in Hobart.
