I was once seafloor | naakita f.k.


Residency from October 25th to December 13th
At Ada X

During their residency at Ada X, naakita f.k. will work toward the development of a new multimedia installation titled I was once seafloor. Using place-based research, 360˚ audio and video capture and material experimentation, the project centers rock, sediment, and the history of mineral extraction. This exploration contributes to naakita’ ongoing research, where they use haunting as metaphor and methodology to reflect on changing landscapes and their relationships to humans and other beings. The work proposes ways to reflect on what was once there but is no longer, while imagining the possible futures contained in the haunted place.
