Ocean and Space Pollution, Artistic Practices and Indigenous Knowledges
OSPAPIK is a multidisciplinary research project examining the way in which the knowledge, know-how, creativity and memory of Indigenous peoples are mobilised in the contemporary arts in response to the socio-environmental crises affecting the ocean and space.
This project was built around a number of research questions, including the following two:
- How are waste and debris perceived from an emotional, sensory, and conceptual point of view when they are included in Indigenous art projects and intercultural collaborations?
- To what extent can art help us to understand the impact of pollution and waste on the relationship that people build and maintain with the ocean and space?
