When we bond with nature, she rewards us with beauty. Seeing true nature is a fascination and challenge for me and it drives my artistic practice. My desire to create leads me on a path to discover what is essential to all human beings— what is essentially human and what is essentially non-human. Culture runs through us bringing currents of objectification as well as reification. Technology increasingly assigns human-like traits to inanimate objects while we become more inanimate and homogeneous in the presence of technology. What it is to be human is called into question as we sense a mystery and menace behind the bright promise of technology.
