Monument to an Ecosystem is an evolving public art project in which large-scale photographic murals (5 feet x 7 feet, each) are installed in natural environments and in urban settings.

The works in this series originated from small cyanotypes of natural landscapes. Some of the photo murals contain a 22-inch diameter cut-out that functions as a viewing device through which one can literally look through the image to the other side. Looking through the cut-out serves as a telescoping device, an optical shift between “real” nature and photographed nature. It also functions as a metaphor, puncturing nature, by cutting through the image.

 

These works have been installed in trees, sides of buildings, and galleries. They are versatile works that can be installed outside and inside a gallery setting.
