Biophilia


Do human beings have within them an innate sense of connection to other forms of life? If so, can this natural feeling, this "biophilia," both enhance our respect for ourselves as humans and reinforce our sense of obligation to treat other forms of life with loving care?

— T. H. Watkins



With this work the artist is trying to explore the fluidity of our emotional state and it’s projection on the things we create and later the perception with which we view it. The intention is to leave the interpretations to the viewer, for them to explore and form their own connections to the work, biological or not.


With a personal interest in sustainable architecture, the artist came across biophilic design principles, later working on making photograms of water, patterns that were forming randomly came to represent different living organisms and cells.
