Initiated in the aftermath of Hurricane Sandy, Tidemarks is a multi-media installation which explores ideas of possession and causality.
Found objects were used to print photograms onto velvet using the cyanotype method. This traditional photographic process produces a cyan blue print which deepens in intensity under UV light.
The cyanotype process transformed my collected detritus into a watery, prussian blue seascape, a nod to the hurricane which churned them up.
In the weeks after the storm I amassed a massive collection of police caution tapes and using cyanotype, transformed them into large scale stripes on panels of cotton voile. Delicate, watery and nuanced, their imprints are a warning of ecological disaster.
