HAV evokes the spatiality of the undersea landscape together with the colours and lifeforms within this hidden, fluid realm. HAV has many co-creators: barnacles and marine biologists, porcelain, sugar kelp, saltwater, ceramicists, crabs, clay, annelids and many more.
HAV was orchestrated by artist and landscape architect Elin T. Sørensen as part of her doctoral project “Multispecies Neighborhoods in Urban Sea Areas,” the Norwegian University of Life Sciences, NMBU.
Curated by Annike Flo and staged at the Norwegian BioArt Arena NOBA Vitenparken Campus Ås 2020.

Comb jellies (Ctenophora) at Tåjebukta Håøya, inner Oslofjord. The comb jellies produce a rainbow effect, which is not caused by bioluminescence but by diffraction – the scattering of light – as the cilia on the combs beat. Underwater photo by Elin T. Sørensen © BONO 2019.
