Nature’s Ruin is a series of prints extracted from 3D scanned fragments of Nature. When we gaze upon a (scanned) fragment of Nature it invokes the ruinous. This melancholy object exist as a aesthetic reminder of something that it has been, or rather, was born of: a re-enactment appearing, almost groundlessly, meaningful in its organic, imperfect complexity.

Nature, as we know & understand it doesn’t contain ruins of itself. Yet when we gaze upon a scanned section of Nature it invokes the ruinous. The scan has become a ruin of nature, what it depicts no longer exists in exactly that state: even though the scanning process in no way touches the Natural subject, weather, animals, humans etc. all constantly change and (re)shape.
