Living in a world where the scientific advancements of society depend heavily on the urgency to fix problems we created for ourselves in the past, my work focuses on our innate desire to continually build and improve out standards of living. I aim to analyze human nature’s tendency to use materials as tools to control and resist or adapt to the environmental changes.
