The Impossibility of Nature
What comes of a synthesis of plastic into our natural world at the microscopic level? The repetitive use of natural detritus brings Shona Wilson closer to understanding the world we share. The materials that make up her work are storehouses of knowledge and information. They act as 'keys', unlocking doors to memory, science, history and imagination. In "The Impossibility of Nature" at PKN Forster Vol. 2 her current work increasingly responds to and reflects upon the cross-pollinations between nature, humans and culture, referencing in particular, plastics' invasion into the 'natural' world.

In “Taking Art Back” from PKN Markham Vol. 3, you’ll see: change is a-coming!
Art With Other Species
"One of the themes that keeps drawing me back to this sorta work is that of technological augmentation. Some interspecies collaboration can begin suggest to us what it might be like to be technologically augmented humans by exploring what it might mean to be, for example, technologically augmented fish. In this piece, beta fish are giving the ability to move freely around a space on land, using these motorized pedestals that they can control. It gives them a new mode of interaction." In Art with Other Species from PechaKucha Night Asheville Vol. 9, Egg Syntax explores the artistic, scientific, and all-together fascinating intersection of a art crossbred with nature. He surveys examples, themes and implications of interspecies art from the simplest notions of using another species as a medium, to that of collaboration with another species. Prepare to have your mind blown.
