Wai Wai Wai is inspired by concerns about climate change and our evolving relationship with bodies of water as we enter the Anthropocene.

The work explores bodies of water as physical, cultural, and unique environmental ‘landscapes’ and investigates our complex psychological relationship to water through different perspectives and geographical locations.

In exploring the concept of Fissures (Auckland Photography Festival’s 2019 theme), Carter also draws on Barnett Newman’s post-WWII zip paintings. William M Boot wrote that Barnett Newman believed that “old standards of beauty were irrelevant: the sublime was all that was appropriate, an experience of enormity which might lift modern humanity out of its torpor.”
