Green Futures Magazine October 2013
These ghostlike figures are hardly visible: what we see is the way they change the flow of light, casting shadows and reflecting the world around them back at
the camera. What a contrast to the many pictures we share, in which our own lives are front and centre, and the ‘backdrop’ remains just that...
We are nothing if not part and parcel of that backdrop, this piece by the artists Maslen & Mehra seems to say. Their collaborative practice compares and contrasts the natural and human dimensions of the world in which we live. Here, the location is Shark Bay World Heritage Area, Australia, where ‘living fossils’, rich seagrass beds, migrating birds, humpback whales and endangered turtles make it a site of immense significance.
