Currently in research/protoype phase, this project explores notions of natural adaptation to human footprint that results in the creation of “New Natures”. 

This project marks a trasition into three dimensional media, in an attempt to create immersive, responsive art installations using natural local materials and other more ethereal materials such as untreated silks in conjunction with technological components such as motion sensors, to create interior landscapes that explore culture and urban/natural spatial evolution and result in what I am calling New Natures. These immersive landscapes react to human presence in interior spaces and engage individuals on a non-verbal, purely emotional level.

These New Natures are based on psychological studies where findings indicate that the human brain is unable to differentiate between actual nature, and a reproduction of nature. In creating these immersive, non-verbal experiences with these New Natures, I explore the posibilities of “harnessing” the same positive psychological benefits identified in this study, and the audience is invited to explore exactly what that non-verbal, intuitive experience might be.
