The artwork Future Memories of Deep Water [intro] is a fascinating point of reflection that is part of a fundamental development in the field of underwater archaeology. The underwater world of submerged artifacts is a mysterious and fascinating territory in which the past is intertwined with the present in complex and unexpected ways.

 

Indiara pushes the inquiry one step further, exploring the potential of algorithms in predicting new interactions between underwater artifacts, and the constantly changing environment in which they are located. This draws attention to the need to embrace technology as an ally in the preservation of our heritage, highlighting how collaboration between science and art can lead to surprising results. The depiction of submerged artifacts being gradually covered by corals, algae and other marine organisms evokes a feeling of beauty yet precariousness. Through this unique perspective, the artist encourages us to reflect on the current issues plaguing marine environments, focusing, in particular, on “plastic rust” and plastic pollution, which is becoming increasingly prevalent. This reminds us how urgent it is to preserve these ecosystems, which are threatened not only by natural growth but also by man’s destructive actions and environmental pollution. The ultimate goal is to raise awareness and promote the preservation of our cultural heritage, which also includes the submerged secrets of our past.

 

Moreover, “Future Memories of Deep Water” fits organically within the Italian context. The Bel Paese boasts a rich tradition of cultural heritage and an invaluable archaeological legacy, and the marine environment has played a crucial role in its history and identity. However, Italy’s coasts are also victims of pollution, an urgent problem that affects this nation’s natural beauty. In this context, the work offers a unique perspective on how technology can be used to understand and address this ever-changing challenge.
