Water Column – The second and final chapter in Taiyo Onorato and Nico Krebs’ spectacular FUTURE project series explores the aquatic world.
FUTURE is a series of books by artist duo Taiyo Onorato & Nico Krebs published over three years by Patrick Frey. After their first book on the future and memory, the second and final installment focuses on a place, or rather an entire realm, that literally surrounds us and yet remains as distant and alien to us as outer space: the aquatic world, far below the surface of the sea.
It’s only thanks to sophisticated technologies that we can dive deeper and explore these uncharted waters. But exploration inevitably leads to exploitation, and we risk destroying this underwater world before we’ve even seen it up close, and begun to understand it.
The depths of the sea have always fired the human imagination, for it is a realm where anything seems possible, a vast screen onto which we project all manner of strange notions and phantasmagorical visions. The deep sea obeys other laws, other rules, and it seems as if we might find our origins there as well as, in its layers of historical sediment, our ultimate end.
Using a wide range of cutting-edge photographic tools and inventions, Taiyo Onorato and Nico Krebs explore this unknown world and create visual scenarios that inextricably blend scientific research and science fiction.
Taiyo Onorato and Nico Krebs (born 1979 in Zurich and Winterthur respectively, live and work in Berlin) have been developing photographic, video and installation projects together since 2003.
