Our engagement with nature is rarely subtle. It sways with the energy of a tropical tree awaiting a storm. With every step we are partners in uncertainty, even as our behavior signals grave concerns. The world is changing quicker than imaginable.
Still, there are moments where I can actually feel so at one with Mother Nature that all else dissolves. The truce between us is real, and I work hard to being there without altering her. I honor her gifts and the privilege to witness her omnipotence and omnipresence.
In the Lens section is yet another photomontage that shows that intersection between nature and human nature. The supports for the bridge that moves through the image on the right is mirrored on the left. That structure crosses through part of the White Clay Creek Preserve and a part of UD campus. Here “we” have cut through quietude and silence to bring students a way to traverse one point to another.
The composite creates shadows of the foliage beaming–shadows that mirror the human condition’s role in climate change. It’s the story of humankind: a story that is never black and white.
