Since 2008, I document aquatic landscapes across North America. Adrift probes our relation to water, underscoring its vital importance and the troubling recurrence of ecological disasters. Like a previous work, Castaway (2012), this experimental video was filmed in the polluted waters of the Staten Island boat graveyard. Located near the former Fresh Kills landfill, these toxic shores have been affected by floods, coastal erosion and by Hurricane Sandy.
