Beautiful installation by senior Lindsey Elredge Fox at WORK • Detroit!
Re Framing Nature
This installation consists of collected and altered plant materials that would have otherwise decayed. Through this series of work I am exploring how manipulation can transform the perception of these decaying plants into something precious. Through repetitive labor I am re-contextualizing the organic material to present it in a light closer to its former state, and in doing so, recreating the reason why we stand in awe when observing the natural world. I am displacing these natural materials and asking the audience to stop and acknowledge these decayed, seemingly useless plants as a newly designed system that is full of life, labor, and awe.
