Focusing on methods of navigation in nature, this installation combines recycled materials, fabrics, painting, sculpture, video, live plants and printmaking to create a strange mapped and staged situation. This work examines organized outdoor activities, exploring relationships people have with the natural environment, and the trappings of preparation for these relationships. I am interested in the thin membranes of safety that lie between the natural world and organized modern life. You are invited to experience this version of nature, re-creations of natural environments and recreational activities, from the safety of Compton-Goethals Gallery.
