The Dive-In is featured in the exhibition Hummings at the KØS Museum of Art in Public Spaces in Køge, Denmark (14 August – 30 September 2021). The word "humming" can refer to a wide range of phenomena: from the noise produced by machines to the sound of gas oozing through the tectonic layers of the Earth to the mating call of a midshipman fish in the ocean. Hummings offers us a chance to imagine a language connecting all beings, animate or inanimate.

A meeting point between the present and a subaquatic future, Dive-In is an architectural installation that functions as a drive-in cinema for humans, and will become infrastructure for marine life when sea levels rise. In collaboration with Dr. Alex Jordan, expert in the collective behaviour of fish, several structures were tested in order to identify the architectural preferences of marine creatures, one of which is the colour pink, which attracts coral polyps and facilitates biodiversity. Scenes of fish interacting with prototypes of these structures are projected onto the façades of the structure, inviting human viewers to encounter marine life interpersonally.
