Photographer and filmmaker Armin Linke’s latest investigative exhibition, entitled “Prospecting Ocean,” strings together a rare footage of deep sea with insightful interviews digging into the political and economic exploitation of our oceans.

The artist’s work presents a montage of rarely seen scientific footage of the ocean floor, juxtaposed alongside equipment used for deep-sea mining and exploration while reminding us of the damage to ecosystems, lifestyles and health, this economically rewarding activity has brought on, notes Design Boom.

The exhibition also probes how the development of deep-sea mining technologies has been driven and molded by the economic urge of the businesses.
