My collection metaphorically considers whether persons are bound to one another naturally, if we are coupled, paired and grouped innately. Using flora and delicate foliage I contemplate the thought that humans, like verdure, possess inherent connections and questions if plant-life longs for one another when they exist apart. I contemplate whether the human species could be similar to that of a plant or seed that even when they are taken by the wind, carried off, separated and transplanted they still hold a connection to a particular collection that grows just as they do.
