My work is concerned with the disconnect humans experience between themselves and nature. With the advent of industrial revolution and the heightening of microbiology, necessary natural elements were removed from humans' living environments. These natural elements allow humans to develop skills important for navigating the world and the ability to problem solve. Resulting from sterile environments, humans began to experience sensory deprivation promoting anxiety and depression.
This body of work considers the ability of multi-sensory combinations of objects, materials, textures and the presence and absence of light to create a sensory rich experience. This body of work does not lend itself to any one narrative but rather incorporates a plethora of narratives through vital materials. In this way the audience is able to project themselves onto the objects and the narrative, in a way that benefits their own narrative. Through the use of Biophillia, my work aims to breach and relink humans and nature as a means to help elevate disassociation and advocate sound mental health and well-being.
