nature as a metaphor for economic, emotional and existential horror

This project is an installation of words and photographs, it is a philosophical treatise on the concept of 'nature' considered through a poetic lens. This work has been featured as solo exhibitions at the Baltimore Museum of Art in the Summer of 2016, at Capsule Gallery NYC between Oct. 4th and Nov. 16, 2018 and at the School 33 Art Center in Baltimore between Dec. 7 and Feb. 2, 2019.
A collection of photographs and language compose an expanded text piece that considers human’s press against (or alienation from?) the natural world.
An installation utilizing words as sculptural elements to contemplate the morphological state of language and nature through a variety of lenses (existential, economic, emotional.)
The installations consist of a series of large format photo prints with texts created by hand pressed dry transfer letters; sculpturally constructed frames with inlaid shelves for smaller photo prints with further hand lettered texts; a vending machine with 300 sentences about the nature of economic, emotional and existential horror; 3 viewfinder essays with images and text; acetate scrolls and a single channel video.
The show is a hybridized essay using photography and text to investigate our understanding of nature as human context.
