ZOOLOGICAL

This series tries to explore the contrast between reality and constructed reality; the trompe l'oeil (deceiving of the eye) through the concept of the relationship between human and nature. Nowadays we surround nature, nature doesn’t surround us anymore. I am looking for the artificial natural environments. Ironically even the fake environments are eventually starting to fade and dissolve over time. 

The environments constructed for the animals are mirrors of the humans themselves. The unnatural environments, created to look like a natural habitat, symbolises a facade of what pleases us as human beings, which replaces the identities of the animals. I am fascinated by how nature is artificially brought back into our lives. I am trying to look beyond the obvious stereotypes, and I start to wonder if nature still fits into our lives.
