The two photography series anticipate a reality in which images
of them will strike the viewer like evidence of alien
planets. The pictures juxtapose definition with blur, like parts
of the landscape already appear shrouded in the mists of oblivion.
They reflect mental ideas rather than the outside world and provoke a connection
of our psychophysical consciousness with the environment.
The works communicate the artist‘s connection with her surroundings.
Humankind and nature are not seen as isolated entities but as elements of the same large organism.
Thus, it is necessary to stop environmental exploitation, if we want to ensure our survival.
We have to stop imagining life on another planet as an alternative and
develop strategies for a future in which people live in harmony with all beings, and nature
as a whole; but we first need to change our attitude, if we want to change something in this world.
