Field Notes are photographic fragments that represent the web of environmental complexity around us. These pictures of human ecology illuminate the contradictions between how our culture represents and co-exists in nature; they illustrate where nature is found, and how it appears to me.
The boundary between the natural and man-made worlds shifts constantly. Sometimes there is clear separation, often the two worlds collide and intermix. Field Notes documents that boundary: depicting locations, objects, and ideas about the natural and built environment. Meaning shifts as images build upon each other based on content and sequence.
I approach this project as both an artist and a naturalist studying my surroundings and collecting raw data. Like all field notes, these are specific and intentional. They don’t come to a conclusion; they point towards more questions and further inquiry.
