Through my research and creating artworks, I question how humans interact with the natural environment and the relationship formed through sensory stimulation and contemplation. I seek to construct work that will reconnect the viewer with their natural environment to foster awareness, respect, and empathy, deepening humans’ relationship with the earth. The viewer is encouraged to physically interact with elements in each peice. It is through this interaction that I hope to bring the viewer to a place of contemplation. To create a timelessness of when someone is in the present moment, separated from the past and the future, from daily routines and obligations.
