Description

This multimedia exhibition explores natural patterns and progressions. Forces of nature are always at work, gradually eroding and reshaping the world around us through a complex process of cutting and filling, repeating, overlapping and coalescing.

This art show seeks to illustrate the fast paced expansion of human influence in contrast to the gradual and adaptive pace of natural processes. Rapid advance can distort the process, too often with startling results.  “Alluvial” invites us to consider how man’s expansion may alter - even accelerate -nature’s progress. Those changes to the land may influence our own patterns and behavior.

 “. . . to know the wilderness is to know a profound humility, to recognize one’s littleness, to sense dependence and interdependence, indebtedness and responsibility.” Aldo Leopold
