The Water’s Edge
The edge between land and water is a rich but precarious place. At the edge is the highest biodiversity, the most fecund soil, and the highest rate of economic and cultural exchange via connections to far-flung ports – but also the highest threat of inundation. Water enables life just as it holds the power to destroy.
This sequence of monoprints and drawings is sited at the edge. Rising tides erode, sediment builds, waves erase, man-made walls resist, moving water cuts channels, pooling water infiltrates. As a visual atlas of the transformations which shape the edge between land and water, these drawings move from dry to wet, from solid ground to saturated soil to liquified mud to open water.
