Cynthia SchroerThis was a wonderful film and narrated presentation at the Fringe here in KC that enveloped me into the oceanic world. I was able to meet an endangered monk seal of the Northwestern Hawaiian Islands Coral Reef Ecosystem Reserve (NWHICRER) and experience four curious dolphins peering at me through the lens of Ziggy Livnat. Ziggy's delight and love of the ocean is evident. I walked away with a profound sense of being a cell on this vast organism called Earth. Just as our cells are organized into tissues organized into organs organized into systems organized into one organism called "human;" so the ocean is an organism, a living body with its own analogous cells, tissues, organs, and systems. The tiger shark functions like a macrophage in a cell, eating dead animals and cleaning up the reef. Homeostasis, is a word that crossed my mind as I marveled at the ecosystem of an untouched coral reef by humans. What is our role as a human in this web of life? Consciousness? Being a voice for the planet? I don't know. I believe we don't know our truest connective relationship as a species with it, but we are learning. Thanks, Ziggy for taking me into the uncharted, vast territory of our planet and pushing through your own fear of the ocean to do your work. What a gift.
