Human Needs is a body of work comprised of several chapters of images and text, with the Nature of Desire as their theme. Working with the Transitory subjects of water, snow, ice, and form, evocative nature images create aesthetic experience. These images visually guide a connection the human body’s sensory system has with nature. Mind gain fast access to concepts through technology, screens and images. To integrate the mind with the subtle sensory body of perception (proprioception and exteroception) is central in motive to these works. A neglected connection between the mind/body system may witness the rise of commodification of Nature, whereas a shift toward connecting the mind/body may witness a form of Nature-such as presented in these visual works guiding attentiveness toward embodied reality or a connection with physicality. If there were a way for an environmental stimulus to guide a shift in orientation, to give rise to human behavior acting from a personal, innate sense of desire, these images offer this occasion.

Omniscient, 2015, 101.6cm x 304.8cm (40x120in), monolithic image and text: A monument of future history. The image stands as a totem for the change in social structure toward the wisdom of water. Water emerges as the discourse for the emotional body. The emotional body serving as the pathway for the wisdom of intuition. In the new world, emotional suppression as poverty and polluted waters cease through the cleansing of pain into ecstatic expression. Responsibility for water comes through the reverence of its high wisdom. Sacred in the new society, water is respected, protected, cherished and shared freely among people to create humane societies upon all lands. A reverence for water solidifies the respect and preservation of the emotional body constituting a humane society for humans to exist in.
The Atlantic Divide, 2015, image printed on fabric, 80,8cm x 44,66cm x 33cm (32in x 17in x 13in). Variable installations contingent upon site and text: An object without end, photographed containing a hole at either end – a playful dance of lines, contours of ground – replicating through visual space, reflexive neighbors – overlapping lines, a rifted path, the river that flows among drifting continents of divided earthly contents.
