Josephine Jakobi blurs the line between art and scientific observation in Halocline.
Jakobi draws on the patterns and rhythms of nature to create meticulous mixed media works, where ecological and biological systems are enmeshed within the fabric of the works themselves.
By creating work ‘from the point of view of an insect’, and by introducing actual organic material into each piece, Jakobi eliminates the distinctions between manmade and natural processes. The Halocline—where freshwater meets seawater—becomes the point through which a greater set of material investigations can be carried out.
