Uncanny Ocean focuses on one aspect of the ocean – how little we know of it.

They say we know more about outer space than the bottom of the sea. This day of events takes this unknowability of the ocean as a means with which to think about the aquatic as a material, a medium, exploring its mystery, and its rich and complex history of migration, trade, prospecting, and violence. Thinking about its murky depths, other creatures underwater and how we might start from the ocean to think of spells, of time out of joint, time travel, visionary fiction and other possible worlds.
