A photographic essay of Loren's has been featured in the latest issue of UWA School of Design's bi-annual print publication Future West. Titled West Coast, the publication includes a series of articles that consider Perth's relationship to water. 

Beyond being the visible markings of mineral loadings, watering habits and sprinkler malfunctions, bore water stains are also alarm bells for the future. Perth's groundwater reserves are in bad shape. Part of the problem has to do with how groundwater depletion is largely out of view. With this in mind, Loren's photo essay focuses on the stains in an attempt to reconnect our awareness with the bigger forces at play.
