"Soft Fascinations" are sculpture and installation based works commenting on our need to commodify, tame, and force control over the natural instead of focusing on making the natural world more accessible. The works serve as quick “nature fixes”– aiming to fit daily doses of nature into the infrastructure of our modern, technology- driven lives, providing a quick fix to our nature deprivation problem. These artificial natural environments focus on the human sensory experiences of being outside. Through familiar domestic items, clean spaces, and minimalist design, viewers can experience packaged, modernized nature. Given that the human hand now underlies all of the world’s ecosystems, who’s to say what is real nature? Almost a sensory extravaganza, each piece isolates that awe- inspiring moment one experiences in specific landscapes and makes them approachable to even the most nature deterred. By employing our innate human instincts of play and curiosity I use the elements of touch, smell, sound, and space to help others foster intimate relationships with the natural world.
