BUILT ~ a work in progress

“Nature is still alive in us, and that is why we feel we are in exile” ~ Patrice Some
This body of work is about the way we choose to live. It is an exploration of the disparity between the built environment and the natural environment and the tension and relationship between the two, with humanity standing in the crosshairs.
I want to document the way we have built our habitats and the spaces used for living and recreation, questioning the social viability of these structures and the isolation we are manufacturing with our walls, both from each other and also from our natural environment.
This is a view from the outside – a step back from the melee and a stark observation of the bizarre realities we have forged for ourselves that dictate our pathways of interaction. This is where we play. This is where we work. The private vs the public space.
