In this journey to the sea, listen in on the conversations between coral and human. TheCoral Empathy Device translates corals’ experience of human effects on the sea intosomething human understandable. Liquid to air, coral to human, the Coral EmpathyDevice is an experiment in interspecies empathy, into subjectivity, into borders, intodecentralisation, into the self and the other and the flows in between. Melding bodies,made by the sea.
