My work not only explores the psychological barriers which challenge our ability to deal with climate change, but also celebrates the beauty and fragility of the natural world.
I use natural relics and plastic as my medium, symbolically representing opposite forces in our daily experience: biophilia and collective social mania. Connecting the two is environmental melancholia…the unresolved heaviness of truncated mourning.
By combining art, ecopsychology and science into my artworks, I hope to help others deepen their understanding of both the self and collective consciousness.
