Shot using C41 120 film, this image tells the story of a journey around the shoreline of Lake McKenzie on World Heritage listed Fraser Island, the largest sand island in the world, in desperate need of protection from pollutants caused by the lack of available information about perched lakes. These lakes are filled with pure rainwater; the dunes and plant debris acting as a "cup" to collect the water. As there is no way for the water to drain away and replenish, any pollutants that enter the lake (suncream, moisturising cream, soap, detergents, etc) are there forever.
This was the prototype of a collection of 10 "water boxes" that were finally installed as a component of my Honours research and exhibition. For more information, see my website sarahemilykate.com
