Remnants centers on the Salton Sea, California and is a response to historical and environmental precedents specific to the area. The work focuses on the spatial and temporal dimensions of human interference. Remnants investigates the relationship between the natural world and the impact of human activity on its condition, most significantly the current issue of environmental degradation.
A number of the images are presented in diptych format. The juxtaposed images offer a visual parallel between sublime and remnant, this representation is intended to be undermined, as the Salton Sea functions also as remnant, formed accidentally between 1905-07. These images in the traditional sense are landscapes, but personally they function as portraits; they are anthropomorphic.
These images register an exchange between people and land, a collection of human traces, where we bear witness to the way that people have altered space to conform to their dreams.
