Advancements in electronics, logistics, and the birth of “apps”, have made our lives more convenient than stores. Technology has created a state of constant connection catering to an on-the-go lifestyle, of which many of us have inadvertently adopted. For some, this virtual world has become a place of comfort much like home. When the natural world lacks stimulation, becomes mundane, or inconvenient, our devices become an opportunity to escape. I suspect our relationship with technology is suspended somewhere between conveniency and distraction. This body of work explores the role technology plays in our lives, and questions whether constant connectivity is leading to a deeper disconnect. Cyanotypes reflect the natural world around us, as the history of the process is rooted in architecture and plant documentation. Paired together, the architectural blueprints and the nuclear family reference the idea of home and where we find comfort. Are virtual spaces providing the same level of comfort we feel at home?
       
     
       
     
 As we transition from childhood into adulthood our memory begins to lose some of its clarity. This process continues for the rest of our lives. 
       
     
 Our relationship with nature can be tricky. We are products of the natural rhythms of the Earth and therefore share a direct connection. Everyone experiences nature differently, some through physicality, some through technology, and some not at all. Metropolitan areas are becoming increasingly vast much in the same way fast food, fast consumerism, and even faster internet are spreading. This connection can be compromised at times by conveniency. This body of work aims to question that connection in relation to the harm we cause. This planet promotes life and encourages the ability to thrive and sustain. These four images depict our own self-destruction through the representation of the seasons provided to us by our Mother.
       
     
 The urban environment is a constant streamline of shapes and sounds. Systemic properties guide us through the blueprint for the day’s agenda. Finding a release amongst the buzz of the urban metropolis can be a challenge.
