I made this collage a long time ago, but somehow it resonates with me still. When I made it I wasn't thinking about meaning, I was in the flow. But then it struck me that this image had something to teach me, and even now, I am learning from it. There is something about skyscrapers here, about reaching for the sky, and something about the majesty and mystery of nature, and something about how skyscrapers are nature – just like anthills and wasps nests are part of the natural world. It is easy to forget that we humans and everything we make, including our messes, as disastrous as they can be, are part of the natural world.
