In both Norse and Vedic traditions, the Sunken Bank is the home of Saga, the goddess of story and poetry. Some say it is located in the depths of waters, under the waves, and serves as a portal to other lifeworlds. At Sunken Bank Collective we believe that stories are what make us human and connect us to one another and to the places we call home.
We approach our art practice with an understanding that we come to know the world through sensory engagement, through hearing, sight, smell, taste and touch. We find creative ways to represent these lifeworlds—telling stories worth sharing, be it in the form of film, photography, sound or art installation.
