Pulmo Marina is a film and a publication. It is the story of a living creature that was raised for display behind a window in a tank at the Monterey Bay Aquarium, California.

“Written and assembled by Meriç Algün Ringborg, this volume is both a two-part reflection and demonstration of disappearance in both personal and cultural terms. The first portion contains an essay that illustrates contemporary and historic assumptions of space and time. Rather than trying to articulate the very meaning of lacking substance, Ringborg writes the idea of disappearance through its converse–documentation, power, place and surveillance. The second portion contains a series of fragments taken from different unnamed sources that both describe and demonstrate erasure in all its moods, ranging from the humorous to the poignant.” Printed Matter.org
