Alike is a photographic body of work, generating conversations regarding our use and understanding of nature. This series focuses on re-contextualizing the linguistic signifiers we give to objects, juxtaposing items with similar physical attributes or namesakes, creating a dialogue between etymology and taxonomy. My work is a product of a background in design, conservation education, travel, and growing up on a Central Oklahoma ranch. I'm proud to have shown in museums and galleries across the United States, including Blue Star Contemporary Art Museum, Non-Fiction Gallery, and the University of Wisconsin.
⋙ Field Notes
In 2015 I worked for the education department at the San Antonio Zoo in San Antonio, TX. During summer camps, we would pull out our bio-logical artifacts collections to show the campers. I still have flashbacks of whirlwind 110º days filled with outdoor adventures, fueled by the occasional bear claw donut. This photograph was the first in the series; it is still one of my favorites. But after moving to Alaska, this image has greater significance as bears are everywhere and part of our everyday life, and I try to avoid them and the donuts.
