Natural Nature

Following from Darwin’s theory of evolution, we are the extension of plants and animals—therefore, human beings can also be defined as a part of “nature.” Despite this fact, when looking for “nature”, most people ignore the human component and praise only the parts that are green, lush and wild. I think this rationale is based on the excessive guilt we feel as a society, a guilt stemming from the ceaseless advancement of modern technology and development all over the planet. So, I started this project as an antithesis to the “old idea of nature” like that is displayed on Google image search. I intentionally collected photographs to be emphasized the “unnaturalness made by human and artifact”. By affirming properly the feeling of weirdness in our everyday environments, I want to record the appearance of "modern nature".
