For this piece, I was inspired by a guest lecture from Annie Sprinkle and Beth Stephens. I created a human figure that was made out of driftwood to represent the connection between humans and nature.
All of the pieces are made from found materials along the Des Moines River. Since 19993 there have been three “100-year floods”. Trash and driftwood pile up alongside the river after a major flood. This is where I collected the driftwood and other items I used to make my projects.
