This ongoing project started as a response to the political climate in my country the past few years- everything seemed to be about negativity, about division, about what is truth (and what is inarguably false, yet touted as truth), how the surface of things can be 180 degrees opposite from what is underneath, but has since grown to encompass the effects (and possible fantastical outcomes) of the Covid-19 pandemic. What would happen if nature took hold, if vegetation overgrew the familiar and transformed it into something altogether different and foreign looking, but also strangely beautiful?
