Abyssal was an immersive installation made out of hand-woven silk nets and collected and sculpted debris from abandoned beaches. It was inspired by the idea of fragmented cultural memory and the ocean as a mythological space. Speakers were hidden inside the nets playing edited audio recordings from interviewed family members from the Philippines. The lights were designed to pulse on and oﬀ in the space.
