‘Re-Shaping t/dunes’ aims to research acoustic communication between coastal infrastructure and the ecological environment when re-shaping dunes on the coast that have been eroded by environmental influences. In this talk session, Minji Kim (a.k.a. Unknown Kim) will address her research through ecological thinking, philosophical speculation, and sound art practices in the context of acoustic ecology and object-oriented ontology.
