––––––––––‘We are now in a position to see the wonder and terror of the human predicament: man is totally dependent on society. Creature of dream, he has created an invisible world of ideas, beliefs, habits, and customs which buttress him about and replace for him the precise instincts of the lower creatures. In this invisible universe he takes refuge, but just as instinct may fail an animal under some shift in environmental conditions, so man’s cultural beliefs may prove inadequate to meet a new situation, or, on an individual level, the confused mind may substitute, by some terrible alchemy, cruelty for love.’ ‘The Immense Journey’ - Loren Eiseley––––––––––

The Great Divide

RCA 2022, MA Show
Dyson Building
1 Hester Road, London
“The Great Divide” examines humanity’s relationship to nature and the endeavour to make sense of a world increasingly filled with both natural and man-made objects. This installation surrounds the observer in an excess of images and objects that question the materiality of our everyday environments.
