Invasion 2.0 (Beta)
The idea of invasive species is more complicated than we might think and through this body of work I am exploring the complexities of invasiveness in nature. All environmental issues are deeply rooted in colonialism, so how can we talk about how people occupy spaces and interact with the land? Additionally, are invasive species really bad or is the issue more deeper rooted? Humans introduced many of the species that are now considered invasive so how can we ethically handle a problem that we've caused? Furthemore, people tends to separate nature from humanity, but in posthumanist thought they in fact aren't separate, but deeply intertwined. No part of nature is untouched by humanity or technology. By creating environments and distorting form in my paintings and installations, I am exploring what it means for humans and nature to be so connected.
