Frailty of the Destructive
Wintergarden Nature Preserve
Frailty of the Destructive stands as a metaphor for how the
human race has disrupted and even destroyed much of nature.
We have consumed everything in the way of our commercialization,
and when there is nothing left to plow over or cut down, we
move on to capitalize the next area. In my sculpture I have
used materials that once came from nature (i.e. paper, flour,
grass, soil) to create the figure. This is to show that even
though human sometimes view themselves as superior to other
inhabitants of the earth we evolved from the earth like everything
else. The sculpture also shows natureís strength and endurance.
I am expecting that my sculpture, after being exposed to the
elements of nature, will be destroyed by nature after only two
days in the woods.
