Organically Intertwined delves into the symbiotic connection humans share with nature, as well as the lack thereof. The more we have advanced as a society, the less respect we have for our environment, causing a major disconnect. I am reconnecting humans to nature by incorporating human characteristics into organic materials. Wax is an important staple in this piece because of its affiliation with the environment and the idea of preservation. The head, faces, and hands are made of wax, which are melting and transforming. This reflects the cycle of life, transformation, and rebirth. Our attempts to preserve humanity have resulted in neglecting our environment and in return we are destroying nature along with ourselves. Although the wax is changing and melting, the found natural elements remain unchanged. In the end we will destroy ourselves and nature will win. In order to achieve balance, we need to reconnect with our environment and preserve it instead of destroying it.
