Sci-Art Expeditions to the Galapagos Islands researching coral resilience
This online exhibition presents documentation of Paul Rosero Contreras' ongoing project Dark Paradise, based on artistic and scientific research held out in the Galápagos Islands since 2017. The project brings together marine biologists and artists in an intimate collaboration tackling environmental issues in regard to preserving Life below Water. In this context, the project echoes UN's Sustainable Development Goals for 2030. After various expeditions in the Pacific Ocean, Dark Paradise focuses on life after the climate crisis and proposes hope and resilience by documenting corals adapting to ocean acidification in the depths of an underwater active volcano, as well as supporting a coral reef restoration initiative called Galapagos Reef Revival. Through photography, video, and 3d models, this show highlights a synergetic attempt between distinct experts which looks to open new perspectives on the future of our planet.
