From Ego to Eco
This interactive sculpture merges various ecosystems into one landscape to address the human-nature relationship. When standing next to the piece, viewers look down upon the land, as is the human tendency. But when viewers kneel and become a part of the sculpture through the head opening, they rejoin the natural world. This act of physically joining a representation of the land we depend on is intended to encourage active participation in protecting the environment and to deepen viewers' relationships to the land.
