Climate change influenced by human habitation can be seen in the disruption of natural water levels, droughts, floods and rising seas caused by melting ice caps. In this way, water is a very real gauge of our ever-changing and increasingly damaged planet.
Submerged depicts a body of water within an architectural space encompassing a figure. The work addresses issues surrounding the transient nature of the world where there is a tension between the natural and built environment, and hints at a future where human life cannot continue to exist in spaces we currently inhabit. It aims to stimulate the viewer both intellectually and emotionally, by focusing on the impermanent nature of the world around us.
