-rhiza

      -rhiza is a collection of work that focuses on an immersive experience of local ecology, as well as the dichotomous relationship of humanity and nature. It is presented through the eyes of the artist, ecophilosophy, ecofeminism, mycology, and metaphor.

      Based on explorations of local waterways and the observation of human consumerism, -rhiza attempts to present the issues associated with rising waste levels and how this is impacting the biosphere. Humanity’s apathy towards the ecological imbalance is ever present, which is affecting our fundamental interconnectedness with all of life.

      -rhiza is an installation of experiential work including printmaking, videography, photography, musical elements, poetry, and both found object and natural item sculptures. This body of work seeks to create a dialogue between humankind and nature, present the idea of non-duality of beings, reroute common thoughts of anthropocentrism, challenge the viewer's idea of self and encourage a realization of the larger Self - the Earth.
