Clare Bryden “Green|Blue: Exe”

Clare Bryden (Exeter)- “Green|Blue: Exe” Laser engraving on mirror-backed acrylic

“This piece visualises Environment Agency flood-risk data, orienting river catchments as ‘trees’. The view from above is normalised. Maps give the impression of omniscience and omnipotence, but ‘flood risk’ questions both in the face of uncertainty and natural forces. What seems strong is actually vulnerable. Changing perspective confers understanding and humility.”
