Mel Chin: SEA to SEE


SEA to SEE is a unique installation by North Carolina-based artist and 2019 MacArthur Fellow Mel Chin, commissioned to accompany The Mint Museum's exhibition Connecting the World: The Panama Canal at 100. In lieu of making an additional artwork regarding the manmade canal, the artist created a work that focuses on the oceans it connects. Instead of expressing the sea in symbolic form, Chin created two unique cinematic portraits, one of the Atlantic and one of the Pacific Oceans, utilizing animated visualization of oceanographic data.


Exhibition displayed October 5, 2022 thru February 5, 2023.
