Evidence of the tangled web of human lives lays over this earth. From the things that connect us, to the things we leave behind, every element of humanity creates a complex interaction with the natural environment. As we continuously build, grow, live and die the landscape of the world changes. People have developed control over the land around us. The right of way belongs to power and human creations instead of nature. This body of work explores elements of the everyday dominance of humankind over the natural world.
