"I use the specific ecosystems as microcosms to study what is happening on a global scale..."
My work strives to visualize and create a method for understanding recent scientific findings related to known climate change effects, like the melting of sea ice. Using artificial materials to represent real landscapes, I interrogate the history of science and art by drawing upon technologies and methods of representation from multiple points of history.
At its core, my work is about inquiry, the ever-evolving process of investigation through both scientific and artistic means. I use the specific ecosystems as microcosms to study what is happening on a global scale and as a case study for learning how to represent scientific information in an art installation. I am interested in questioning our relationship to natural spaces through technology, and how the artificiality of the physical world in the Anthropocene contributes to our experience and understanding of climate change.
