Psyterratica is inspired by the counter-culture references of the sixties reformated into present day. One machine scratches away at the wall as if to break through the barrier, echoing dreams of artists and designers from the era. The other shows an image where a lightbox highlights different layers; describing our nearing environmental dystopia inviting viewers to contemplate these notions today. Both pieces are representations of new types of mental states that emerge from contemporary human-landscape emotions.

  • I am interested in imagined worlds and narratives as a way of communicating anxieties around human-landscape emotions. I design sculptures that play with image, light, movement, materiality to make concepts (i.e. psychoterratic, anthropocene) tangible. My practice and methodology hope to add to the uncomfortable and sometimes dark conversations that are part of understanding human and landscape relationships,and push the boundaries of imaginations in the minds of the viewers.
