I am fascinated by the similarities of art, technology, and nature. Thinking about process-oriented exploration naturally lends itself to a metaphor about growth and adaptation. When visiting spaces that showcase art or botanical life we are told to look but not touch. We are taught that we will negatively impact a plant or a painting by manipulating it. My intention is not to discard the established etiquette of art and nature spaces. There are important reasons for these rules: A painting will deteriorate with the slightest touch or even if exposed to the wrong light, and a plant will die if over watered. Instead I am questioning conventions about the human’s relationship to art and the human’s relationship to nature. Maybe not all art loses vitality when you touch it, and maybe there are ways to interact with our ecological environment without destroying it
