Lost in a Sea of Trees : Senior Individualized Project
MetadataShow full item record
People often associate abandoned places and objects with sadness and death. Abandoned places evoke a surreal otherworldly feeling that is unsettling to most people, but I find these places strangely beautiful. With these abandoned spaces and objects comes the encroachment of nature which adds to the fantastical quality of these places. They are unsettling because they seem like portals to another world. The feeling of stepping into another world is what I set out to create. The forest I have created in the gallery allows the viewer to explore and feel immersed in the space. My work depicts man-made objects that are being taken back by nature in an effort to replicate the feeling of being lost in a forest littered with signs of human civilization. It is my hope that the viewer will become lost in a sea of trees.
