The Challenge Nature Provides I and II suggests an animal attack yet the victim appears relaxed. The images, with their various possible readings slipping and sliding, are short hand for challenge we confront and grapple with as beings trying to reconcile animal and human natures. These two photographs establish the foundation for a collection of work (Digester, Using Walter De Maria’s Lightning Rods, The Animals Stage A Valiant Surrender, The Gentlest Gesture, I am A Land Animal, We’re Coming We’re Coming, Wait Up Stones, PWR FLWRS) that address the synergistic relationship between people and landscape.
