WE MEET HERE

Guyana’s seawall, the point where the Atlantic Ocean rushes in to greet the land but is confronted by a miles-long stretch of a manmade barrier built to guard against the water’s unpredictable nature. Despite countless repairs and design amendments over the years it has, for the most part, managed to keep the threat of displacement at bay.

 

We Meet Here is a series of digital collages that presents the meeting point of Guyana's coast and the Atlantic as a representation of the juncture where the individual meets opportunity. The beach morning glory plant, an equally important feature in the series, is used as a metaphor for those of us who, while rooted in a very particular space, find relief and discomfort at the cusp of both here and there.
