sea unseen (digital audio recording, 10:40, 2016) is an audio public artwork commissioned by Fringe Projects and Miami-Dade County, and supported by a Wavemaker grant through Locust Projects that was temporarily installed in downtown Miami storm drains. An abstracted audio narrative, sea unseen borrows from the language of mid-century radio dramas and film soundtracks, remixing collected sounds and music into a quasi-sci-fi scored work to carry an allegory about sea level rise. A preview was also played in the pool at The Standard, Miami where the public could listen underwater while soaking in a luxury pool right on the bay. 
The project has aired on radio stations from Utah to Miami and was featured in the IKT symposium ARTiculating Sustainability: Resilience in the Climate Crisis? at PAMM in 2019, where I also presented  on my work. A photo edition and a zine, Sea Unzine with the original script were produced along with the audio artwork.
