All that southern coastline meant we lacked the resources to survive the zombie prawns, fast-scuttlers, near-invisible, so many many legs.
Within the Gulf of Mexico, a dead zone lies beneath the waves. As excess pollutants from farm run off accumulate in the water, they deplete the oxygen in the surrounding water, killing marine life. Mary Alexandra Agner paints this horror into a larger frame – the apocalypse, as an Australian horror film. Throw another zombie prawn on the barbie, will you? And mind the algae in the pool. // Alex Massey
