Is it possible to capture the entangled state of a food web? Since 2004 I have been collecting plastic from the shores of Derbarl Yerrigan. The plastics are hidden inside the knots of seagrass.

Unique states exhibition

Unique States considers different states and the many meanings of the idea of the ‘unique state’. It refers to a print making technique, to states of being, societal and environmental states and to our geographical state. The past three years have launched humanity into ‘unique states’ and Western Australia has become even more of a ‘unique state’ because of its position apart from the rest of Australia and the world. Unique States presents political and environmental realities, as much as flights of fancy, taking viewers through a variety of unique states via the medium of print.
