StatementThe human desire to transform our environment is a fascinating and ceaseless endeavor. There is a fierce momentum to be seen in this collective work of humanity.
I’m particularly interested in the boundaries, beautifications, and utilitarian artifacts that we press into service in our environment. Further, I seek to understand our wish for control over the environment, ourselves, and each other.
Have the works of the past had the intended results? If not, are we making the same mistakes again? And how does this unstoppable human work change our relationships to each other and the planet?
I explore the visual records of our human endeavor and how it reflects our hopes, challenges, and fears.
