jury citation: Marlene Creates
powerfully explores the themes of place, landscape, and temporality in
images that foreground questions of perception. Poetic and meditative,
her work explores the traces of human presence in the environment and
invites viewers to consider both our lasting effects on the land, as
well as the ephemerality of our presence. We were really struck by the
way in which her work explored temporality using the documentary
function of photography in ways that weren’t simply about catching a
moment but which unfolded in time.
