The Nature Of Interdependence series is a portrait of the isle of Albion. The artists traveled to specific costal points around the United Kingdom to create large scale salt-prints using the water from the ocean they are photographing.
Walter & Zoniel waded into the sea collecting gallons of sea water from the exact point of their composition, which they then distilled and recombine to poetically produce a print of the sea made with the sea itself.
The duo pushed the salt print medium to new scales with the use of giant digital negatives. Salt prints are contact prints, where the negative is laid on top of the photosensitive base and consequently has to be the same size as the final work. By combining digital technology with one of the very first photographic printing techniques, they were able to accomplish the creation of these conceptual salt prints on a new scale.
To remove their own personal reference to the images, the artists named each work with the exact geographical co-ordinates on which they were shot. Allowing viewers to overlay their own memories and emotional relationships with the ocean on these seascapes.
