— Nicole Miller for Hyperallergic

New York-based artist Sarah Cameron Sunde stands in a tidal bay for a full tidal cycle, usually 12-13 hours as water engulfs her body and then reveals it again. The public participates. What began in 2013 with a simple poetic action has grown into a complex artwork, involving hundreds of people around the world.

“The surface simplicity of the work belies the complexity of its theoretical, aesthetic, and political potential. 36.5 offers an opportunity to approach questions of art, performance, and of the the human place in nature from a variety of discursive and disciplinary perspectives: feminism, eco-theory, theories of space, embodiment, and affect, questions of resilience, histories of performance, art history, as well as questions of transnational art activism and modes of fostering eco-spheric consciousness.”
