WATERWORLD
 
is a statement referenced to the worlds polluted waterways, and intends to prompt us to consider the moral and environmental consequences of mangrove habitat loss, continued fouling of the worlds oceans and rivers.

By looking at coastal mangrove forests, wetlands, shrimping farms, industrial coastal wasteland, beaches and river estuaries, and finding elements within these environments which when viewed through the carefully selected lens (I have chosen one focal length for the entire project- NO PHOTOSHOP RETOUCHING) which in some images causes a warped sense of scale, I seek to create the illusion we are looking down on an imaginary Tolkein-esque world.

Natual anomolies I find within these eco systems, most notably the mangrove plant and tree roots, I see robed tribes and other creatures immersed in a struggle for survival within this ‘water inundated realm’.  Within this liquid morass the ‘tribes’ constantly wander in pursuit of a better, dryer life.  They quarrel. There are wars! There is struggle.

Ultimately I'm using the innocuous mangrove and focusing on the incongruity of form and offer a visual analogy to drive the message that humanity could end up in a lawless, much depleted terrifying world if we continue on our current trajectory of environmental destruction.
