We are so pleased to announce that Jessica will be at the opening. So don't miss your chance to come meet the artist of these incredible sculptural works!
Artifacts are the physical manifestations of our presence. Artifacts are defined as human-made only, a modification of natural materials. Other types of artifacts are nature facts, objects taken from their natural environment and used as is, unmodified; and animal artifacts, a creation by a non-human animal. Artifacts/Ecofacts attempts to collapse all of these definitions to create artifacts that represent the complex relationships between humans and other species. The works are observations of our roles as ecosystem builders and reflect the non-human animal and plant species that live in human-made ecosystems. Artifacts/Ecofacts are fragments of our daily environment. They reflect just how close nature is in our everyday lives. The mental construct of “nature outside of human spaces” creates a block, keeping us from seeing the nature that is embedded in our homes and neighborhoods.
Artifacts/ Ecofacts (Yew, Sweet Gum, Scotch Pine, and Cedar) \\ Plywood, Sterling Silver, Brass, Burnt Wood and Pine Cone. \\ 2017
