Synthetic Waters are a photographic project of site-specific installations around the streets of East London.
This project signifies the introduction of construction materials into my practice when I start to see the buildings, constructions and their materials as the most significant disconnection between nature and myself. These materials also appear as a solution to a conflict with the waste and the origins of the traditional oils mediums I was using. Furthermore, as a female artist, I take ownership of materials that have a strong male significance attached to them to play and make with them. The scaffolding netting is a very versatile material; for this project it became a suggestion of torrents of water to shape unsettling urban landscapes. The plastic that was once in part water, became water again, looking for its way to escape from the cement city.
