Date of Defense 2007-11-14 Availability unrestricted AbstractThe issue of Modern society’s detachment from nature and a sense of place are the inspiration for this body of work. The use of aerial landscapes relates to the concept of our increasing disconnection from nature and our environment. Viewers float above the landscape and are not part of it. They can become involved visually but are not connected by a traditional point of view. There is evidence of humanity, but it is impersonal, paired down to simple shapes and brush strokes. By pulling back and showing humanity as a smaller part of the earth, like ants leaving trails in the dirt. I seek to give perspective and call attention to our relationship to the world in which we live.
