About the Artwork

“I live in the woods and see various creatures of nature everyday. One night, a tree frog decided to climb up a window at my home. The tempo of the video has been changed to allow for contemplation of this encounter. A change of thought was introduced by reversing the image. This suggests a duality, a binary outlook. Do we travel through nature or in nature?”
