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