“The shore is an ancient world, for as long as there has been an earth and sea there has been this place of the meeting.”

   The Edge of the Sea, Rachel Carson

 

The Edge of the Sea is an apocalyptic relic, a result of the merging of ecologies from above and beneath the ocean. The work begins with a fascination in the skeletons of sponges washed up on the nearby coastline and a sense of wonder in both their similarities to land fauna and a re-imagining of their live state. This re-imagining has been nourished by the apocalyptic dystopian writings of Margaret Atwood and JG Ballard where, under the influence of human driven climactic change the familiar becomes ‘rich and strange’.
