Kate van der Drift

Imagined and real waterlines dominate Changing Shores of Shadow, as Kate van der Drift contemplates atmospheric fluctuation in close-by, low-lying landscapes, while employing a mixture of analogue and digital manipulation.

Using council maps of potential sea level rise as a starting point, van der Drift imagines the effect and potential atmosphere of coastal inundation and inland flooding, pictured alongside parched plains and thirsty riverbeds. Devoid of people these scenes could be from a dream – still, quiet and windless, coloured by a subdued palette.
