TERRESTRIAL AETHER

Through an eschatological view of animism, I investigate disintegration and spirituality. Animism was potentially the first expression of religion, allowing humanity to acknowledge being part of a harmonious network with all creation. This theory accepts spiritual essence is not only within humans, but all creatures, objects, and geographic phenomena. I identify ecological cyclicity as a liaison between realms, to strengthen the connection between humanity and our changing biosphere.

Wrapping, layering, knotting, and tension allude to origins of traumatic degradation. Reinterpreted mycelia veins, fruiting flesh, and exoskeletons highlight the potential for symbiosis between terrestrial growth and humans. Filaments react to space and gravity, as a reminder to make time for stillness on the inescapable path to decay. Based upon contemplation of faith, this work alters perception to bring more awareness and peace.
