Urban island; A reality and a reflection, a raw isolated space, encompassing the trueness of the natural and impact of humanity. Cutoff from the general population by highway intersections, these microcosmic landscapes encapsulate both the overarching quality of nature, and the more temporal actions of society. Looking at the seductive qualities of perception, such as an individual's relevance, authority, and ideas of power I reflect on the human narrative and its relationship to the natural world. I am compelled by this conceptual intersection, this microcosmic framework that illuminates ephemeral human centric realities, against a landscape that maintains a timeline in natural reality.

To engage the concept of the Urban island I look at nature, at reality as an actor that is intertwined with debris, with discards and categorized objects. Through these orchestrated works is an inquiry into humanities attempts to control power, by reconstructing truth and reorienting the landscape of how we see.
