Krisanne Baker’s ecological work and activism focuses upon water – water quality, availability, and rights. Her multimedia works and installations are created from mostly upcycled materials (often with site specific water samples) and with the intention to raise awareness about issues concerning water; specifically on the effects of pollution and climate change sea level rise, ocean acidification and the current unbalancing of the natural food web. Baker likes to reel in her audience, luring viewers with the beauty and fascination of water. But often upclose examination of water quality samples and cultural practices reveal to the viewer a horror. She works in short experimental film and film performance, installation, and painting medias.
In these times of climate change anxiety, Baker maintains her own personal balance through daily walking meditations on her local upstream estuary habitat on the Coast of Maine.
