Attempting to make sense of the world around us is in our nature. We venture out into the deepest oceans and climb the tallest mountains to take notes, make maps and collect data. The marks we accumulate from these pursuits and discoveries are not without their own implications; we also leave marks of ourselves in nature’s landscapes. From the minuscule to the extreme, we leave behind everything from unobtrusive ski tracks to devastating oil spills. Human+Nature is an exploration of how artists have captured these themes in their work.
