"The re-emergence of neo-liberalism in the 20th century, propagating laissez-faire economic policy, free market capitalism, and global expansion are asserting influence and pressures all around the world. Consequently, ecological systems and communities face challenges and threats, often with little regard from these global entities. As a visual form of communication, 'What May Come' identifies these consequences and factors affecting communities, calling into question the policies and inequalities represented in these policies, in an attempt to draw attention to these issues. Visually narrated through both factual and metaphorical representation, the images in this project comprise three different modes of work including digital photographic technologies, antiquarian photographic process, 'platinum and palladium printing', and multimedia projections. The work serves as evidentiary proof and a conceptual visual warning to the threats and consequences at play. By conducting research into the ecological dangers and instances of the subjects recorded in the project, I am affirming the proof, in order to inform, not just theoretically but factually, and conceptually as well."
