This vernacular narrative stands as a public art, lens-based installation. It addresses the ongoing flux of the Anthropocene that is ; Man vs nature, natural vs artifact and nature of the artifact and nature of man’s actions in this textural exploration. Throughout the narrative of this conceptual artwork is an entwined trilogy of the highly constructed, to naturally occurring and the discarded. A mythical symbolic journey, which weaves together the appearances, which transform the dynamic qualities of the five elements, which occur, in, on and within the planet; as well as our social fabric. The various mediums anchor the mythic façade of sleek reflective imagery to the ground reality of human development through stories in fired clay and the use of mundane objects.
