Digital photographic image transparencies on light-boxes. Milk, flotsam, foliage, domestic items, medicine etc. 2021
This body of work examines movement in and across bodies of water. I was influenced by research into migration and how the search for sanctuary (often an act driven by necessity and immense courage) might feel visually. Using flotsam found on beaches, toys, leaf matter, cloth, and spices immersed in baths of milk. Then patterns based on migratory pathways were ‘drawn’ into the liquid and the items photographed as they responded to the movement. The resulting images were then deliberately inverted in post-processing to underline the sensation of light in darkness.
