Verdure: Mutual Viewing
Exhibition. 
Large-scale archival inkjet pigment prints. 
2018.

For three weeks during late summer of 2017, I spent time in Barcelona, Spain doing anthropological fieldwork to investigate human-plant interactions in an urban setting.   Influential to my decision to research this subject was the writing of Wandersee and Schussler (1998) where they coined the term “plant blindness”.  The condition of plant blindness is one wherein humans do not notice plants in their everyday lives, do not understand the importance of plants, or may see plants as merely a green backdrop for other activities.  Overall, the lack of human relationships with plants is a contributing factor to a greater feeling of environmental apathy. This project works to use photography as a means to adjust how plants are seen and felt, exploring a mutual affection between plants and humans.
