About Underwater Bristol
When Steve Mentz traveled to the University of Bristol in June 2018 as a Visiting Fellow, he was asked to generate “oceanic” programming. The model he chose for how to activate the oceanic meanings of a coastal city was Underwater New York. After a workshop in Bristol, and thanks to UNY’s editorial team, we can now bring you Underwater Bristol.
