Presented in pairs, this work is a surreal exploration of how our desire to control and order nature often results in designs that draw on natural motifs. We mimic nature, and as such, irony is suggested when subject and imitation inhabit the same scene. In ‘taking’ a photograph we are in a sense taking possession of the environment; the subjects are flattened and everything presented on a two-dimensional plane. This project plays with the idea of the equalising character of photography using the comparative form of the diptych.
