Topographical maps drawn with marsh sediment, watercolor, watermarking, graphite, on paper 2021-2022.

The Messages from the Marsh project is developed via site-specific research, video documentation, and in-person engagement. Videos shown reflect on immersion of spaces inhabited, spaces transformed, and spaces lost. The water's skin, the separation of the realms of water and air, are explored through underwater and over water imaging. Each piece works in relationship with each other to suggest a fuller, interconnected and dynamic rhythm with resonant impact across their spaces.

This work focuses on coastal marsh locations on the east coast, areas that are projected to be lost under water by 2050 through combinations of sea level rise, tides, and storm surge. I'll continue to video above and within the marsh water bodies, and also create topographical maps of the marshes. The maps are made with site-specific sediment and watermarking, marking a moment in time before the potential loss of these areas to ocean reclamation and salt marsh ecosystem collapse. I'll continue the impact of coastal marsh loss on the ecosystem and probable species extinction, and efforts in preservation and management.
