In STORIES FOR FISHES, FIFTY-FIFTY asks participants to locate themselves in relationship with others facing the impact of sea level rise. Building on the idea that the distinction between land and water is perpetually fluctuating in South Florida, Fifty-Fifty further blurs this condition in attempting interspecies communication, sharing participants’ stories and drawings with sea life on a local reef. Fish are thought to have spatial memory. Lobsters and sea turtles live up to a hundred years. What if we could transmit some of our memories to the species that will inherit at least part of our cities? What if we could keep some of our memories local? Could this be a poetic antidote to the anticipatory loss of the cities we are actively still creating?
