IMAGES FROM A PANDEMIC PRACTICE
Wastescapes explores how we partner with the natural world and the spaces we create, inhabit, and often neglect across her terrain. This work is a ritual and a kind of ceremonial practice, a practice in witnessing the weight of waste, mourning abandonment, communing with the wild, and healing in the wake of decay. It centers empathy and reciprocity, and invites us to be in relationship with our more-than-human world as we continue to encounter the devastating effects of climate change and search for more sustainable forms of regeneration and renewal.
