My site-specific environmental installations consider new directions in landscape architecture from an environmental aesthetic that views landscape as an art form. These installations attempt to evoke natural forces in order to transform the way we understand landscape. Here the science of the comic book merges with traditional landscape painting into 3-dimensional landscape form. By knitting together diverse forces of inspiration, these ecological parables are brought to life through viewing machines, mirrors, optical devices, and dioramas that invite the viewer to interact with the artwork itself. Ideally the work will increase the viewers perception, enhance their experience and instill an awareness of the fragile state of the earth's ecology and inspire the viewer toward change and action.
