“In between the sewage outfall and luxury boats, a surprise: A community of turtles swims in what is deemed uninhabitable. Amongst mangroves and the ostentatious presence of the oil industry, people living in the Bay gaze at abandoned islands, imagining projects of ecological utopia. From the residency experience, the feeling that remains is that, even though future memories seem desolate and catastrophic, and the present seems impossible to live in, there are still pulses of life resisting in this complex territory.”
