artist statement:

What if climate change causes tropical sea creatures to migrate towards the poles and invade terrestrial spaces as seawater warms and sea levels rise? “Aqueduct” explores these questions with hundreds of porcelain corals, anemones, sponges and other marine invertebrates spilling into the gallery from a hand-carved porcelain air duct register.
