My work is an attempt to understand our ever-changing relationship to the environment through various connections and personal metaphors. In this series, I chose the process of sewing on photographs I have taken because it simultaneously destroys and recreates the image, which mirrors the way we are currently reshaping the natural world around us. When I create photographs of the environment, there is a conflicting sense of loss and connectedness. Is our place in it one of revitalization, ambivalence, or destruction? How do we influence the cycles in nature as they also impact us? I believe there are universal stories and conversations across time, space, and perception that connect us all - although sometimes tenuously. Through the process of destroying and creating the final image and layering perceptions of place over time, it becomes a meditation on and metaphor for these thoughts.
