INTRODUCTION

 

OCEAN -- she remains enigmatic even though she was here eons before us. Historians and economists see her as a “highway” for transporting goods and cultures, fishermen made livelihoods from her bounty, and writers and poets have memorialized her merciless storms and other-worldly creatures. But most of us know ocean from personal experience -- her photo-worthy sunsets and buoyant waters, waves to play in and salty fresh air, seashells for collecting, and the sounds of sea birds.


Today’s ecologists know our global ocean from the life-sustaining services she provides us-- every second breath of oxygen we take, all the fresh water we require (hydrologic cycle), her regulation of our planet’s temperature and weather patterns, and her important food source of fish.


Unfortunately, for over a decade, scientists have also been reporting on changes that threaten ocean’s health: bleaching corals, ocean acidification, over-fishing, ocean plastics, and endangered marine species.


Based on this new scientific information and your own vivid seaside memories, we are asking artists and scientists to help us build a new perception of ocean by sharing their creative visions of our deep connections to her, the health issues she faces and/or possible solutions, and feelings she inspires in us.
