ARTIST STATEMENT

I am interested in the relationships between climate change, the environment and people. It is my intention to document the changing coast and intertidal zones of Carrickalinga Beach, South Australia. Our intertidal zones will be devastated and destroyed by climate change, I am documenting the degradation of one specific zone of outstanding beauty. Referencing Japanese traditions of washi paper and Japanese traditional abstract map drawings, these themes and techniques are integrated with Western traditions of map making and cartography.
