Artist Melanie King lives in a part of the United Kingdom that is forecast to be underwater by 2030 as a result of rising ocean levels. She set out to take photos of the area to be flooded and then developed the photos using seawater and seaweed. She also explains how she did it. More on Melanie King's work at her website.
Thames - Stream of Consciousness
Artist Olga Suchanova is a Slovakian emerging visual artist living and working in London. She is inspired by nature, properties of matter and energy; and quantum mysticism, which are translated into the light, colour, pattern and form with the use of experimental photography, printmaking and painting. In her work, she questions concepts of space, time, illusion and reality.
