The History of the Earth

Colin Mosely

Colin Mosely

Due to ideals of human exceptionalism, we often disregard the connections between humans and other animals, plants, fungi, and minerals. Through my art practice, I debunk these misconceptions and unveil the interdependence of seemingly unrelated species and materials.

Using 3D digital software, I create images and animations illustrating connections between natural elements, and human commodities where plants have active roles in shaping our lives.  The myth we have created based on self-reliance makes us unavailable to the vulnerability of the environment. I wonder how art can affect our ability to grieve and respond to urgent ecological concerns, demanding action rooted in an understanding of mutually beneficial relationships.
