    My main project this year is a series uniting the high desert and the ocean, two ecologies difficult for humans to inhabit without altering the native landscape. Remnants of peoples interaction with these locations appear in the form of detritus, either tumbled on the beach shore or bleached and rusted by the desert sun.

    In Tidelands, rocks are wrapped with cyanotype prints of litter and ocean flora washed up near the Santa Monica Pier, a Los Angeles landmark. Rocks gathered from the Llano Del Rio Colony site, a failed alternative community whose ruins are located in the high desert north of Los Angeles, are printed on with imagery from plastic bags and wrappers. The ocean and desert are united in this work, two distant yet similar physical locations without potable water.
