Since the 70’s I have been studying the impact of economics on the environment. Exploring topics like genetically engineered foods, clean water, and the rights of nature, I have sought to make visible changes, which occur over time, or on a microscopic scale.
The works represented here relate to the impact of fossil fuel extraction on habitat and life forms.
