Semi submerged detritus, and tangled rows of flotsam and jetsam have inspired the assemblage Edge Tracking which responds to the thin tidal edge of the Lake Macquarie foreshore. The work is a response to the tidal strip of land, which occupies the edges of lake Macquarie’s intertidal zone which lays between the high and low tidal extremes as this unique environment. The work attests to the linear geography of this intertidal zone, made up from both its long thin trajectories of washed up items, and a distinctly eroded shoreline.
