Attentive Encounters (2015)

"In the culture we call materialistic, today we are of course bent on the total destruction of material and its conversion into junk and poisonous gases. This is of course not a materialistic culture because it has no respect for material."
–Allan Watts

Central to my work and this project is the idea of a sustainable relationship between the self and its environment, with the intention to engage 'more attentive encounters between people and materialities...'1 To that end this work explores the idea of recultivating a sense of reverence for the natural world and its finite resources.
