The Anxious Ocean and the Moon-Bathers explores the themes of eco-womanism and dreams of the biodiversity born in the post-anthropocene era. Over a short period of time, punctuated evolution has saturated the oceans with human leftovers and their genetic footprints. These plastic-carrying DNA permeated into microorganisms transferring their human-like traits to the inhabitants of the sea. The marine life now lives in an anxious ocean infused with human consciousness. The Anxious Ocean and the Moon-Bathers depicts one day in this non-human world.
