Post-Anthroparty by Mariam AlZayani, 2023. Site-specific installation depicting an afterparty in the wake of human extinction in which capitalist objects have lost their use-value

Narratives from the Hadal Zone by Kyunghwa Kim, 2021. A 4 metre ‘egg’ from a seemingly gargantuan deep-sea creature, this work was created by the artist through painstaking labour of removing strips of wood from mother-of-pearl embossed Korean furniture from the 20th century.

The Ocean Machine by Anna Kim, 2021. Audio-visual work projected on the facade of a 15 storey residential building that depicts a machine that collaborates with a Korean sea goddess to get rid of ocean micro plastics— a story co-written by Kim and an AI.
