The Challenge Nature Provides

The Challenge Nature Provides I, and II suggests an animal attack, yet the victim appears relaxed. With their various possible readings slipping and sliding, the images are shorthand for the embodied struggle, the challenge we confront and grapple with as beings trying to reconcile animal and human natures. These two photographs establish the foundation for a collection of work (Digester, Using Walter De Maria’s Lightning Rods, The Animals Stage A Valiant Surrender, The Gentlest Gesture, I am A Land Animal, We’re Coming We’re Coming, Wait Up Stones, PWR FLWRS) that address the synergistic relationship between body and landscape.
