My current work explores the intersection of digital, industrial and natural landscapes.  A longing to interact directly with natural environments is expressed through the analysis of objects reminiscent and symbolic of specific places.  I am not replicating these landscapes but trying to understand and communicate their composition through deconstruction and recombination.
