This work explores Kate’s frustration at arriving at a 'pretty' result, when she longs for meaning. In addition to the finished work, she shares photographs of the work in progress, providing carefully composed glimpses of the making/creation process. This image wraps meaning within in it; a captivating portrait, from which we cannot look away.

The women divers of Jeju Island (known as haenyeo) are unique and rare workers. For centuries, they have harvested seaweed and shellfish at depths of 20 meters, holding their breath for as long as two minutes without any equipment other than their rubber suits, masks and nets. The Korean women divers of Jeju Island have faced the tempestuous tides of history and struggle for economic survival. Many of the haenyeo live a life of purpose and resilience well into their 90s.
