Unknown life form / Ultra low frequency

Three disparate planes of physical existence: two are inhospitable to life without a protective enclosure that replicates conditions at the human scale. Another, the natural habitat, made unlivable by endogenous actions. We communicate intra and inter-spatially, between the upper-most reaches and the depths below. The voice is distinct in each medium—each atmosphere (or lack thereof) creates aesthetic conditions in which the voice becomes a universe of its own, yet the simultaneous interaction between great distance and the immediacy of aural proximity is always a liminal event.
