Scenic Viewpoint

Sadie Sheldon's avatar Sadie Sheldon

As our waste continues to transform the environment, my work imagines the landscapes of our future, equipped with the slow-decaying artifacts of our culture. In this thought experiment, natural environments are transformed into synthetic spaces, wherein the natural world has mutated to accommodate the vast quantities of our excess. My work encourages the viewer to experience this landscape, derived from natural, familiar forms, but created entirely from the remnants of our daily consumption. This recontextualization of material playfully highlights our culture of disposability. It calls attention to our rapidly changing and dying natural world, simultaneously acting as ode, elegy, and warning.
