Spring is a work that stems from a personal interest in how humans try to design and construct nature. Focused on towns and cities I look at how we build natural space within public urban and suburban areas. Be these parks, front gardens or the flowerbeds that border pavements and buildings. I make the pictures using a hand-scanner, this means I have to physically interact with the plants that I am scanning. Some of the pictures in the series are then built from different scans, emphasizing the idea of design and construction of nature. The process of the work results in 'errors' occurring within the pictures. However the errors are celebrated, a concept of imperfection derived from Wabi Sabi philosophy.
