Default Settings II


The installation, Default Settings, juxtaposes natural and cultural habitats and prompts the viewer to navigate between nature and objects that function to create simulated experience. The ground installation consists of artificial sweetener, branches moving according to the cultural division the time, and plastic industrial leftovers.  As nature is explored as an intangible image, the inherently intangible world of culture is explored through an embodiment of human artifice analogous to the depiction of nature.
