Human   Nature

An illustrative exploration of our industrialized society.

Is it human nature to revel in the environment while also participating in its destruction?

I remember as a child the joy of hiking and up close encounters with different wildlife; while, I also remember the joy of playing in the soil, building damns and forts only to get the satisfaction of later destroying them. These experiences and observations of how both I, and others were changing our natural surroundings captured my attention.

What is a meaningful connection to nature?

How is that connection obstructed?

Is there both beauty and sadness in our development?

How often do we focus on what is impacted?
