“Entangled Dialogues” 

We are part of nature yet as human beings we often see ourselves as separate from it. In the age of the Anthropocene, meaningful environments as nourishing places continue to disappear. The interdependence of the human and nonhuman worlds is being ignored. As climate change progresses, this sense of ‘loss’ is accumulating. 

My work explores tensions between nature and culture and entanglements between the human and nonhuman. Reflecting on notions of symbiosis it questions what it means for human beings to coexist with our environment.
