liminal studies

Using google earth, I have virtually traveled the shoreline of Prince Edward Island collecting screen shots that display specific geographical features.  These aerial compositions present stretches of shore that feature areas where the water breaches the shoreline to create an inland stream, pond or marsh.  Transitory, liminal places that are vulnerable to sea-level rise and erosion, and could be vastly altered in the years to come.
Adapting a woven pattern to overshot, I have figured out how to weave each of the three geographies (land, shore, ocean) in a different pattern, creating another visual variable to distinguish the area of colour.
