The Sea-Image: Visual Manifestations of Port Cities and Global Waters is the outcome of visual research by xurban_collective, and a symposium that brought together an international group of artists, scholars and writers. The Sea-Image aims to address the seas as defined by various manifestations of global trade, economy, and the flow of bodies. It endeavors to develop visual and narrative strategies to tackle with the particularities and potentialities that the sea presents.
