Blue Ocean is an online digital art space conceptualised in 2021 and founded in 2022. It hosts group and solo reflections that exist solely online. Its aim is to create a space where artists can experiment and create artwork for the online medium. The space aims to address contemporary issues surrounding the Internet, digital culture located in the Global South and artists engaging with it.

9 Colours focuses on investigating how the digital space is a space for artists to experiment and play, to iterate and repeat, to copy and paste. These concepts draw and rely on behaviours specific to the digital space, to social media and the internet - such as: liking, sharing and commenting, creating and making. Using the framework provided by different platforms such as timeline content, images, posts, videos, filters, stories, reels and lives, the way in which the exhibition is curated is inspired by these formats and behaviours.
