For its inaugural exhibition, LIMB collective explored [hydro]ecology as a form of speculative writing. Reflecting on so-called ‘wet’ ecosystems as sensitive surfaces, organs of inscription and archives, LIMB’s members considered the non-human expansions of the very notion of inscription. The exhibition thus attempted to appropriate the cartographic and economic practice of hydrography to hydrography. While the former consists of describing the physical characteristics of water, for purposes of maritime safety and economic development, hydrography imagines ways to detect, narrate and understand ‘wet’ environments.
