This is not a catalogue of finished work. This is also not a report of our collaboration on climate imaginaries. Instead, this zine offers a peek into an ongoing collaboration between artists, designers and researchers who have jointly turned their attention to the rising ocean. In riso-printed* collages, designers Carlo De Gaetano, Andy Dockett and Mariana Fernández Mora formulate their visual responses to the questions, insights and experiments we encounter on our journey.

Previous research has shown that before people can accept, let alone create, the change necessary for the climate crisis, they need to first be able to imagine life in a changing climate. How can one facilitate imagination between generations and across species, geographies and materialities? Or liberate the imagination from recurring tropes that suggest climate change is of the future, elsewhere, affecting others, when so many people worldwide already live its devastating impact?

These questions lie at the heart of our programme Climate Imaginaries at Sea. With the generous support of the NWA-arts route, CoECI and ARIAS, we will continue our work through artistic research studios that address global South, material and interspecies perspectives on climate change*, striving to make waves.
