Half of Everything, 2023
Half of Everything draws from geopoetics, a practice that encourages the intersection of various art forms and ecological inquiry, to navigate questions about biophilia, the rejection of anthropocentrism, the romanticisation of nature, and the use of nature imagery to promote "desirable" lifestyles. This project experiments with poetic approaches to artmaking by reimagining poetic structure in the context of visual art. The "rules" of poetics (rhyming, line, spacing, imagery, etc.) become arbitrary rules to a game through which various visual and aesthetic choices are made, influencing new readings of images and toying with the ways in which our ways of seeing the world around us can be altered.
