The Salton Sea, California. (2015 - )
“Siren Song” is a body of work that centres on the desert landscape of California's Salton Sea. In this project, I focus on the materiality of the landscape and the vestiges of its inhabitants.
Almost frozen in time, the Salton Sea feels silent and empty. Sparseness, open terrain, the desert’s horizon, and the distant mountains define this world and pull me in. The artifacts of everyday life, embedded in the desolate aesthetics of the landscape, compel me and help draw a connection to the history of this arid environment.
Siren Song is a work that neither documents nor tells a linear story. Instead, it reflects my emotional connection to and understanding of this seemingly haunted place.
