This futuristic eco-system is meant to inspire and contemplate on the impact of human actions on our natural environment. The title of the installation, Primordial Gardens, suggests an idealized form of nature, an original state or a mysterious point of inception. In this state, life is defined by the organic and the inorganic as biological systems. However the conversation is placed in the present socio-economic and political system, where environment is constructed and destroyed according to ideas generated by the commodification of culture. The manmade materials are used to create artificial environments that convey “beauty” equal to nature.
