As an interdisciplinary artist, drawing critical attention to degenerative soil management and its impact on climate, I am inspired by what cannot be directly seen, questioning the perception of the micro as inferior to the macro. By elevating the role of soil microorganisms – the fuel that powers this planet – I challenge man’s position of superiority over other forms of life.
To a significant extent, the ongoing environmental crisis is born of denialism and the delusional exceptionalism of man. I address these issues through a flow of interrelated explorations, with a focus on the soil microbiome as a proxy to challenge the culture of environmental anthropocentrism.
With the global warming reality and concepts of New Materialism penetrating the realms of visual arts, I seek to imbue the interpretative space created by the artwork with a guided message to steer environmental consciousness.
