Pelágica relates to the recent classification of the Azorean archipelago as a Hope Spot.

Pelágica relates to the recent classification of the Azorean archipelago as a Hope Spot: a place of exceptional and rare marine biodiversity considered critical for ocean conservation (and life on earth, resulting from its unique and exceptional marine biodiversity. The geographical and demographic conditions of these islands, commonly seen as 'obstacles', now become an evolutionary advantage, highlighting this place as essential for life preservation and research of dynamics between living beings. Pelagic exploration introduces us to never-before-seen organisms and environments. It's in this context that the project acquires space for speculation about the invisible underneath as a place of potential ecosystemic cooperation (with a technologic humanity), shaping the matrix for possible past or future phylogenetic evolutions. Pelágica assumes that these (positive) relationships are a form of collective (bio)intelligence.
