Drifter

Drifter explores the visual reflections and aberration of light, water, and climate. These conditions of place are relied on for survival. Water is a pressing component of our contemporary lives, from toxic drinking water to floods and drought, water has become an icon of our changing climate. The affects that our environment has on our ability to live in a place is a relevant issue to survival. The images pose visual questions about the transient nature of water and light, two key aspect of our planet that support life. My ideas behind this project developed out of my interest in subsistence and contemporary survival tactics. As parts of Texas flooded – parts of New Mexico dried up. Observing this dynamic situation, I became interested in the basic components needed to survive. Drifter pushes my ideas forward while creating beautifully puzzling depictions of water and light from major rivers across the US.
