Trace is a personal investigation into the continued presence of man in the landscape surrounding my childhood home. Since moving away, particular areas that once provided an escape from everyday life now provoke a sense of unease, creating detachment between my original environment and myself. As the traces of our existence are more apparent to me now than ever before, the land seems fraught with the threat of change and, as a result, the loss of childhood memory. The shifting relationship we have with the natural environment is characterized by a constant tension in the fragile relationship between the man-made and the wild. If the boundaries between the two continue to blur, how long before the unnatural becomes natural?
