Social, Participatory and Public Art
Masters' recent public art projects consider the ways in which we navigate and make an impact on our locations, landscapes and communities. What traces of our presence are left behind through the interactions have within our environments, and what do we want the legacy of our presence to be?
Through innovative participatory projects, Masters interrogates the relationships we have with our locales, disregarding the status quo and seeking to disrupt the implicit power structures that guide our use and interaction with public space. At the heart of her practice is the intuition that art in public realm should have a beneficial impact on the communities and environments in which they are placed.
