122cm x 122cm. Birch Plywood, 5:35min animation (looping), HD Projector. Aug 2015-Present.

Spending much of my time in the outdoors, I have become increasingly aware of the conflicted relationship between nature and society. We are currently spectators of an unprecedented environmental decay, more dramatic than we have seen through our history. As generations continue, natural heritage gradually depreciates in exchange for economic growth in society. I witness a world that is becoming increasingly manufactured and perfunctory, and I question if our culture has become indifferent to the values of natural landscape. I am concerned about current environmental change and prevailing landscape perception. Through the combination of topographic model-building and abstract animation, Natural Affliction is an exploration of post-industrial landscape and the natural life that persists despite urban integration and environmental degradation. In this, I question, how can we redirect our attention and value our relationship with nature?
