We Become the Place is an exhibit that creates habitats through the layering of mixed-media materials in both works on paper and sculptural installations. Referencing South Florida’s unique landscape, these bodies of work create a sense of “wall-life,” which dance delicately between 2D and 3D spaces exploring concepts of identity and adaptation. Acting as nature’s gesture drawings, air plants and jellyfish are shapeshifters, while flora and fauna create a consistent narrative. Nature changes and morphs to its specific location, becoming the place. Through quiet observation we adapt as well – floating and drifting through new identities, creating a personal and natural symbiosis between our daily life and the physical environment.
