The Measure Of Water
In the fall of 2022, I took a walk with the Gulf of Maine Research Institute along the Portland, Maine waterfront. We experienced the flooded wharves of a King Tide, a phenomenon which used to happen 3-4 times a year, and is now happening 20-25 times per year. I was amazed by the slow creep of these changes, concerned with their impact but awed by the beauty they created. I began to use a Gelli plate monoprinting process to ponder this double edged sword.
