A series of work exploring biodiversity and the categorisation of nature.

I wished to highlight the need for biodiversity and conservation - taking inspiration from the fact that we have only discovered a small amount of the existing species on Earth, and yet biodiversity is being depleted due to human populations and climate change. The series started through a study of the categorisation of plants and animals, although during the project I rejected this idea and opted to instead show a harmonious merging of humans and nature (mirrored through the juxtaposition of the traditional and digital mediums) in order to make the viewer feel a part of the natural world and not the centre of it, to promote a need of protection and engagement.
