These collages bring to light mankind's invasive conquest of the surrounding environment.Much of mankind's connection with nature has been interrupted by technology, corrupted by a drive to satisfy his capitalist and industrial desires for expansion. While we may dream of a time more humanely tied to the natural world, the vast expanse of green space is steadily being replaced by industrial infrastructure. Our population is growing beyond the terrestrial confines and along with our desire to satisfy a consumerist diet. Lives of luxury, surplus and excess expunge our natural roots, distancing mankind from the welcoming aura that mother Earth possesses. While much of our conquest is rooted in technological progress, it is important to draw the line between necessity and avarice to become one with our environment rather than wearing it like a trophy.
