The exhibition Eroded Origins is an immersive art project that aims to raise awareness about climate change and the interconnectedness of ecosystems. Eroded Origins consists of three elements: The Flow, The Cut and The Blessing. The Flow series depicts the devastation caused by climate change and human impact on forests while simultaneously symbolizing a protective aura in the atmosphere. The Cut series emphasizes the horrible beauty between detachment and attachment, seclusion and kinship, as we seek reprieve from the residue of our ecological actions. The Blessing, presented as a video loop, acknowledges the devastation within the Kruger Lake Clear Cut and its surrounding habitat in northern BC. This segment highlights the critical rethinking needed within government reforestation policies.

Manipulating lens-based imagery, the Eroded Origins project delves into liminal illusions as symbolic and meditative gateways to our environments imbued with vibrant greens, sky blues, harvest yellows and rich earthly browns. These artworks metaphorically illuminate emergent environmental portals, serving as omens of the impending climate crisis. The exhibition explores varied interpretations of light, representing the luminescent forms for addressing ecological challenges. The artwork intends to prompt contemplation, ignite discourse and nurture a profound emotional and spiritual connection to the natural world. Eroded Origins: Liminal Illusions Amidst Climatic Transformations, poses the question “If the forest could communicate, what would it say?… Speak for Me!”
