My series, Brackish, is comprised of collages printed on light weight, sheer fabrics to be displayed with heavy ceramic sculptures. My work suggests we all have blind spots but we must endeavor to see each other and our natural water resources as precious, only then can we engage in activism that supports our communities holistically. As the Florida aquafer yields to consumption. Jacksonville, like many other cities, will have to make hard choices via local legislation about where to get their potable water from.
The river supports us and teaches many things: Keep your eyes open and be present, respect the currents allow them to move you when you can, but defy them respectfully as needed to get where you need to go. Expect miscalculations, and keep correcting your course. Much of what I am was chosen in currents of brown brackish water learning to trust in my body’s buoyancy and be brave enough to be other while loving all that I am not.
