Inspired from Boreal forests, this is an investigation of how transcribing certain formal elements of the woods fabricated from synthetic materials may translate the meditative sensation one can have from being in nature. In using natural colors and multiple linear forms, a serene space is created as a means of transcending our fast-paced and over stimulating lifestyle.

Artist Statement:

Inspired by natural phenomena, I investigate how I may transcribe selected formal elements found in the environment by using manufactured materials. In exploring natural patterns through a synthetic scope, the audience may become aware of the increasing distance between western culture and wildlife. In fabricating new environments for the spectator to experience, a dialogue may begin by questioning our relationship with the environment.
