The video “Transparent like the concrete sea” is about being fluid, travelling the world as a story, narratives and the network they exist in. It starts with the story of cargo ships, carrying commodities and hitchhikers like the peach blossom jellyfish, an organism that starts as a tiny polyps. We never see it, until the climate change makes the temperature rise. Than it surprises us: jellyfishes (also called medusas) in our sweet water, in our ponds, our canals, our lakes. So there she is, Medusa, able to freeze our world.
