200 meters proposes the creation of an immersive installation from sensory data and mapping obtained by an underwater manufacturing apparatus in the environment of the Aviles Canyon, an abyssal gap located about seven miles from the coast, between Colunga and Navia, which is one of the most important and diverse ecosystems on the platform of the Cantabrian Sea.

During his residency of production at LABoral, Andy Gracie will design a hybrid underwater apparatus, combining standard elements and other custom-made DIY (Do It Yourself) ones and rapid prototyping. This device will incorporate sonar, a camera and a hydrophone to facilitate mapping and registration of phenomena in the deep zone of the sea.

Subsequently, the British artist, settled in Asturias since 2008, will make an expedition by boat to the area of the Avilés Canyon for collecting information. All these data and documentation obtained during the investigation will be part of the immersive installation that is going to be displayed from July in the Exhibition Hall of the Port Authority of Gijón.

Ciencias del Mar is a call promoted by LABoral and the Port Authority of Gijón and is aimed to Asturian artists whose work uses science and technology in relation to the seas and oceans.
