Free Immersion Notes

10.00

The project “free immersion notes” is structured as a non-linear “journal” of relocations, reflecting on hoarding and haunting, memory, digital and physical accumulation, being out-of-joint and scattered and the “oceanic feeling”. Drawing from horror conventions and uncanny fiction, the story unfolds through the point of view of a character who has come unstuck in time and is training to adapt to different timelines and dimensions, becoming amphibian and bodiless in the process. The narrative, fragmented in this way, thus coalesces into a kind of diving chronicle that links the vocabulary and metaphors of Symian free-diving traditions with the experience of digital space.
