Project: The Fountain

After moving from New Zealand, my understanding of nature was redefined but remained a continual source for my work. This project is the result of a long fascination with the process of transformation: that matter never disappears but is constantly in flux, rearranging from one form to another. The works are moments of touch between man and nature and between one state and the next.

Thesis: The Fountain

The Fountain is a collection of essays which, by following the steps of the water cycle, investigates the connections between nature, science, religion and art.
