Nature Trail is an evolving, site-sensitive installation that will grow and transform the gallery space over the course of one month. Frequent visits will allow you to witness its evolution. Conceived as an intimate stroll that begs one to explore, not unlike hiking a trail, you can spatially follow the meandering forms while poking around at small clustered vignettes of natural, industrial and urban debris built in response to the gallery’s architectural quirks. Viewed from multiple vantage points, my work sweeps across the expanse of walls, dangles downward from ceilings and juts outward to explore the physicality of place and its relationship between the natural and built world, in order to examine how we interact with our environment. Boundaries between real and artificial, material and immaterial are blurred as plastic forms mimic and integrate with living, growing and changing forms, inserted into invented and inert constructions of paint, cast and shifting shadows that are both ethereal and concrete. Green consciousness is exposed through recycled and re-purposed materials and natural growth processes are referenced through shelf “fungi” and wall “protozoa”. These hybrid environments reference primordial and post apocalyptic landscapes and question the future of materiality upon the process of growth.
