The Nature of Things is a project that attempts to question and disrupt our idea of ‘environment’ and what it means today. By using the body as a tool, I set up scenes that aim to change the landscape by introducing the unnatural into the natural, or the natural into the unnatural. For example, the photos depict a person painted as a fish in the ocean or a body covered in grass lining a New York City street. Through performance and photography, the reactions of the passerby’s are captured, highlighting the bizarre within the everyday façade of the ‘normal’. This project, like all my work, investigates interpersonal connections to our surroundings to ultimately question both collectively and individually, why we do the things we do.
