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. But when viewers kneel and become a part of the sculpture through the head opening, they can "join" the natural world. This act of physically joining a representation of the land we depend upon aims to deepen the participant's relationship to the land by seeing it as a part of and connected to us.
