EROSION PRESERVATION

Multimedia Installation + Performance
Isolation Projects II Remote Residency
Connexion ARC, Fredericton, NB.

2020


.............................................

Part sculpture installation, research, and live-streamed performance,  Erosion Preservation intertwines geography, ecology, and history within artistic metaphors of matter, process and technology to explore an embodied approach to care and resiliency for the Tantramar salt and diked marshes.

Within realities of the climate emergency, this work brings attention to the affects and effects of coastal erosion. Drawing parallels between myself as an artist and the paradox of erosion and preservation, I navigate my relationship to nature using processes such as osmosis, crystallization, oxidization, and evaporation as my artistic allies.
This project was shared in real time using internet-based platforms and a live-streamed event, where audiences could join in to reflect on their role within these themes.
