ATHERTON, Michelle (2012). Absorbing Red Photons. In: Water: Image International Conference, Plymouth, UK, 04-06 July 2012. (Submitted)Full text not available from this repository.
The paper analyses the undercurrents of meaning circulating in recent representations of the ocean and underwater exploration. Three broad themes will be explored by reflecting on submersion as a contemporary state describable through a type of marine psycho-geography. These will cover the spatialization of immersion and the collapsing of time: how the ‘inner space’ of the ocean has become a synonym for Outer Space and its narrative of a journey into the potentially dangerously inhabited unknown and how in these dark, breathless depths the alien becomes an un-encountered presence.
