My Bloom installations focus on the relationship between nature and man-made infrastructure.  Humans are the most intelligent species to walk this earth, so we often think we can manipulate our surroundings to satisfy all of our desires.  These actions are taken regardless of the consequences on our natural habitat.  However, nature is always moving back toward balance.  Completely remove the human element and nature flourishes, absorbing evidence of civilization into its earthly depths.  The earth has adapted for many millions of years, despite adversity and extreme terrestrial damage.  The question is, how long will humanity survive if we don’t learn to live in harmony with nature?
