Lush green vegetation, cascading waterfalls and waving golden wheat 5ields; UV printed on vinyl adhesive, stuck to an electrical utility box, vending machine or underground subway advertisement. These cultural moments of decoration and distraction through images of plants and nature mimic a place you feel you might have seen or been to before, but they also advocate a removed conception of nature and our place within it. The context of my work 5inds root in the potential of such images to frame a condition of experience that can address how we approach ecological predicaments in the present and future. My terminal project, Edge Condition, utilizes mesh textile screens woven with strands of grass, 5lat-screens displaying 3D generated plant forms that seem to sway and move of their own accord, and a structure of steel framing studs that composes all of these elements into a physically immersive installation. Edge Condition manifests a physical space which presents the possibility to re5lect on how we think about "nature” and technology together, and perhaps how a future horizon might envision such a convergence.
