Portable Containment: emergence2019
I-PARK Site Responsive artist residency 2019, Connecticut, USA
A floating site-responsive environmental installation created during residency in 2019.
Remnants of a submerged village break the water’s surface to reveal its forgotten site. This contemporary interpretation of a commemorative memorial is informed by the social and environmental impacts of changing climates.
This narrative inspired intervention explores contemporary memorial monument to a forgotten community/habitation emerging from the receding waters. Symbolise change and highlight the destructive impacts caused by fossil fuel and mineral extraction industries to our complex natural ecosystems and communities.
The work’s narrative, as always with my practice, aims to raise thoughts, questions, challenging the views thinking.
