Cara Despain’s “Sea Unseen” is a sort of omen, a story ascending, quite literally, from beneath the ground, co-narrated by the ocean itself. Despain placed speakers in a number of downtown storm drains, where they blast loud enough for the streets to hear the tale of a great American paradise, swiftly and frantically overtaken by the sea.

The project’s first incarnation took place in the pool at The Standard Spa Miami Beach, where Despain invited visitors to dive underwater and listen, placing silver bubble-lettered balloons spelling out “UNSEEN” on the surface.
