Salt Water Country is an immersive installation experience, engaging the senses of sight, smell, sound and touch, as you make your way through an underwater kelp oasis. You are encouraged to feel your way through the exhibit and allow your senses to be captured.
This exhibition draws on Culture and Country, and explores the effects that climate change is having on both. Emma Robertson invites the visitor to reflect on their daily practices and consider the small changes we can all make to protect our seas from the impact of climate change. This tactile experience emphasises the deep connection we have with kelp and the sea, and highlights how they can aid against the effects of climate change and global warming.
The kelp in this exhibition has been collected using ethical and sustainable practices. The installation utilises video and recordings captured during on Country trips from collection sites.
