This body of work is a simplistic look at how man has used the natural elements to create new structures to benefit man's lifestyle, focusing on woodland in particular. The circular mirrors played as portals as they were placed on either the elements of the woodland or what had been made from them, one reflecting the other, to symbolise the circle of life. Whilst walking through woodlands, it is easy to ignore the little details such as fences and gateways to define boundaries within the woodlands, a pile of branches collected, or the odd sculpture, that happen to be made from a tree that was once standing amongst the environment around them. These creations are man's stamp on the natural landscape and present how humanity has taken advantage of the very elements that help us to survive.
