Changing Anthropogenic Intention
Inspired by rapid urbanization, which is causing previously bio-diverse areas to be paved,
my pieces focus on changing the human impact on the planet.
Throughout Dundee, Scotland, native plants such as English Ivy and Sedum angelicum take root in walls and roofs, reclaiming the land humans settled. Using intentional aesthetic infrastructure to not only protect human establishments but also encourage plant and animal life allows for a balance between humans and the natural.
My work emphasizes the simplicity of modifying a paved city into a bio-diverse area through public artwork and aims to spark a continual change in perspective about what a city can be.
