SOMETHING & NOTHING
Displayed at HERE. Aboriginal Student Art Exhibition, 2020
For this piece Pollock went out into her temporary local Vancouver city environment, exploring and looking for her subject material. Being allergic to petroleum derivatives, she often thinks about how plastics are becoming commonplace in our water systems. She wanted to provide a photo narrative that expressed the relationship between life and death due to environmental factors. Finding a small backlit water feature, she felt it would express the importance of water, and the transition from something alive into the depth of nothingness. The photo was taken without alteration and with minor cropping using a Sony A6300 mirrorless digital camera, f/4, 1/160sec, ISO-1250, 16mm.
