The 16mm film and installation Outline for The Bonding is part of a larger research Letelier has conducted in collaboration with the Institute of Marine Research (IMR) in Matre, Norway. The project explores in depth the economic practice of salmon farming, the genetic manipulation of fish, and the impact of aquaculture on the local wildlife and the ecosystem's balance. Letelier’s work stresses the importance of ancestral knowledge and especially of Sámi epistemologies in the process of questioning the anthropocentric worldviews and human exceptionalism that led to genetic manipulation. The voice accompanying the images belongs to Sámi artist Ánde Somby. The text is an extract of a conversation with Letelier recorded in Tromsø in 2019.
