This experimental “brick” of a book intervenes in the Harmonized Commodity Description and Coding System (also known as the HS Code). Tucked into the alphabetically sorted 26,000 lines of code are poetic, personal, and scholarly annotations that are focused on ocean-related entries.
More&More (The Invisible Oceans), is a catalog of the eponymous project’s first exhibition at bitforms gallery in New York, featuring full-color images of the art on display (including video stills, bespoke bathing suits, and fungal sculptures), as well as an introduction by Marina Zurkow and a conversation between Zurkow and international curator Kathleen Forde.
The ocean makes up 71 percent of our planet’s surface. So, how is it that we know more about Mars than the marine environments of Earth? As impenetrable as the deep oceans are to humans, we imperviously live in a black box of international shipping, reducing the ocean to a surface rather than an environmental…

Many of the book titles are drawn from some of the most influential works of contemporary ecological thought, by thinkers like Donna Haraway, Timothy Morton, Eduardo Kohn, Amitav Ghosh, and Jane Bennet. Others invoke concepts or topics closely associated with climate literacy and advocacy. Yet others allude to contemporary popular culture.
