Reflecting the fragility of natural vegetation and the strength of geological formations, this work evokes basic memories of secret and special places, both real and imaginary. The viewer’s senses of smell, touch, and vision are all involved as they are drawin in and channeled through the site. The focus of my work is the contradictory relationship between people and nature: our appreciation of its beauty and life sustaining forces and coexistent technological greed and destruction of the earth. My sculpture pays homage to the capriciousness of nature; at the same time, it addresses human attempts to control and restrict nature. Special thanks to the staff and crew at Socrates Park and all my good friends who helped me with this piece.
