Human Nature by Anki King
May 5, 2017 - May 31, 2019
Human Nature is created from natural materials (branches and vines), woven together in a human form. As humans we are dependent on nature and there is a tension effected as we are, at the same time, capable of destroying it and thereby ourselves. If we are able to see ourselves as part of nature instead of separate from it, we can be sensitive to the balance that is necessary for us to thrive.
