The work shown here is a call to experience the deep connection possible with close observation. The interaction of light with our coastal water and atmosphere, the ubiquitous branching pattern found in plants (and humans) are offered as portals to an essential truth: We are of the natural world, not separate from it. As such, we are mandated to make the choice, as individuals and as a species, to pay attention to our impact on our environment and on each other. In the words of Mary Oliver; "Attention is the beginning of devotion."
