the Nature of Nature
A book, termites, soil, glass aluminum, steel and time  -  43" x 42" x 32"
In the piece the Nature of Nature, a nineteenth century dictionary is placed on top of a rectangular shaped section of earth contained in a glass display case. After the addition of approximately 200 termites the case was sealed off except for a screened section to allow ventilation. As we exert our nature upon nature, nature exerts its nature upon us.
