“’Scientists calculate that the deep sea – the lightless zone of the ocean that includes everything below 3,000 feet – encompasses more than 90 percent of the earth’s biosphere. The skin of habitat on land is minuscule by comparison. Yet because the ocean’s depths are dangerous and very expensive to explore, very little is known about the deep sea…’ This quotation is taken from a report on the discovery of a bizarre species of giant squid found lurking at the bottom of the world’s oceans, which Ellen Gallagher included in a limited-edition artist’s paper, produced in 2002, just as she was embarking on a new series of drawings.” – Text by Caoimhín Mac Giolla Léith
