We the Coral.

SAM LEE

This project is a kind-of physical and artistic mulling — it is my way of reckoning with the emotional force of discovering and learning about anthropogenic effects on our oceans, specifically coral reefs. Depicted are 25 species of coral considered “endangered” or “threatened” under the Endangered Species Act (ESA) by the U.S. agency National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA). They are shown with signs of the human — a tire; a trawling net; black ink as oil; void of color as coral bleaching.
