The Sea is a Blue Memory

is an artwork by Priyageetha Dia, shown at the Kochi-Muziris Biennale 2022–2023. The title design of the artwork explores the idea of the sea as an archive/anti-archive, as an enduring vessel for holding histories and information.

Described as “an archive of the enduring”, the sea holds enduring fragments, forming in a layered space without order and orientation — slippery, elusive, and indeterminate. (Credits — Title animation: Nghia Phung; All artwork image, video, and photograph courtesy of the artist)



is a creative studio that builds media worlds. With a focus on arts and cultural development, the studio celebrates imagination and creativity while leveraging on new media technologies to unveil new perspectives towards visual culture.

The identity of ToNewEntities (TNE) is inspired by creation myths, the logotype is envisioned as an object-in-motion, churning and forming something new, otherworldly. The type renders itself typographically inside its letters’ counter-spaces and apertures, lines set within text leading — reflecting the studio’s operational interests in the latent spaces/gaps, blank states, unexplored potentialities.
