KEEPING WATCH on HABITAT (2017) explores the fragile coexistence of nature and humanity within the built environment. Loss of habitat, often as a result of human action, is the greatest threat to wildlife in the United States. Recognizing that biodiversity is crucial to human well-being, KEEPING WATCH on HABITAT seeks to connect us to the natural world, offering new ways of seeing and experiencing the miraculous diversity of life on Earth.
As cities have grown, the pastoral has been pushed outside of the urban environment, and today the tension between wildlife habitat and human habitat is a fundamental part of the larger question: how do we survive what we have built? There is no way to return to Eden, but there are ways we can enhance our relationship to the complex system that sustains us.
