Yandell Walton: Shifting Surrounds

Standing in front of a wavy ocean, watching rain fall and just staring at a body of water are some of life's most calming experiences. That said, simply soaking in their beauty is difficult to do when you start thinking about the fragile environment that's responsible for all three. In digital installation Shifting Surrounds, Yandell Walton combines nature's majesty and the eco-reality — with her display contemplating the planet's shifting environments, as caused by climate change

Launching as part of the ART+CLIMATE=CHANGE 2019 festival, presented with the Centre for Projection Art and on show at The Substation until Saturday, July 20, Shifting Surrounds also aims to shine a light on humanity's connection with ecological and physical systems, the current technological climate and just what is rapidly altering our world. It also examines the idea of earth entering a new geological age, called the Anthropocene. Basically, consider it eye-catching food for thought.

Developed by Walton across a series of onsite residencies over 2017–18, Shifting Surrounds also lives up to its name in another way, too. The installation responds to the architecture of the building, so prepare for quite the immersive sight.
