Anti-Elemental (Abstract)

This work depicts a sense of chaos and disarray. Contours and black fragmented space stretch erratically from one piece to the next. They appear not too dissimilar from birds eye views of mountain ranges and other various landscapes. The practice is fundamentally orientated around the ideas concerning our relationship with the natural world.

With the advance of technology we compete with nature on a universal scale and as this happens there is a slow division in styles between ourselves and the natural, even though we are ourselves part of it. As a species we mostly live and think in boxes. We calculate, quantify and objectify the world around us. However the way of nature is completely erratic and has no regard for this kind of thinking. In this series, we are shown landscapes understood through the computer and a technological process. In more digestible terms, it regards the form of nature as too complex for our full understanding of it. From our uncertainty, technology is born of our attempt to conquer and control ever-changing nature.
