Is there a way to restore our connection to nature, make us become one and the same yet again? How can we not see we are nature?
As an artist and human being, the relationship between ourselves as humans and nature has been consuming me every step of the way. Questions on the sustainability of my practice – one which relies on potentially harmful processes – on the subjectivity of my experiences and on the influence we have on the world around us, have guided me through the course of this project.
Mirroring Landscapes, the title of this project and book, refers to the many ways in which we relate to the world around us. First of all, it points to how our perception of the universe reflects our inner world, our desires and beliefs – and how we have learned to see ourselves as the center of the universe for far too long. Second of all, it points to how the impact of our actions on the landscape reflect our broken connection to our surroundings. Lastly, it points to the use of photography as the means to create a mirror image, a way to direct our views on the world in which we live today.
