A repeated motif runs throughout Clarke's imagery: water in all its myriad forms. Resulting from her 2018 residency at Tylee Cottage, Whanganui, Clarke has integrated two new media to her practice - sound and moving image. Although her sound recordings are synced with two video works, they permeate the space, the sound of water flowing from a range of sources that contribute to the city's soundscape. These include storm water drains, the wastewater treatment plant, decorative water features and a dam; creating a collective ‘typology’ of the waters that flow throughout everyday Whanganui life, blurring the boundaries between what is considered natural and what isn't.
