'Making and Note-taking' focusses on my explorations during the beginning of this project. In Chapter Five of my Dissertation, I discuss my navigations regarding the use of water and ocean water within my artistic practice and how water became incorporated within my cyanotype printing. This section is situated within and reflects back upon such findings. It introduces the in situ nature that oftentimes accommodated my art making processes and also presents my initial 'Field Notes' for this project.



'Five Liter To and Fro's', 2020


This video piece reflects upon my back and forth trips to retrieve ocean water for printing via the use of 5 liter plastic water bottles. As I note in Chapter Five, " These plastic items became valuable containers that were filled and refilled, usually with ocean water for printing..."

'Ebb and Flow', 2020


This video shows the ebb and flow in the ever - changing meeting points between sea and land. In Chapter Three, I note: "Shorelines and areas where terrestrial surfaces meet the sea are the places where most humans have their furthermost prominent physical interactions and experiences with the ocean."
