(palladiums)'</i> and '<i>Oh Louisiana! (photo-tapestries)'</i>. All these works responded to how littoral spaces are held amorphously by land and water, and what this means for the body standing amongst it trying to see, or find a way out. </p><p> </p><p>As a somewhat mythical landscape, I also looked at Louisiana's littorals and swamps through the animals that live amongst it, performing ectoplasm expulsions on the swamps edge, while aligators and peacocks watched.</p><p> </p><p> </p><p> </p>
