ARTEFACT(S)

— 2018




Whilst exploring several islands on the Atlantic coast of Europe, I came across several bunkers. Constructed in the 40’s, these abandoned buildings still exist in the landscape, their function no longer clear. Inspired by these fascinating artefacts I created similar objects using the same components: concrete and organic matter.
This work aims to visually represent the progressively decadent effects that human beings have on nature. As these artificial constructs stand still through time, we see how the structures become ‘skeletons’ of their former selves and are absorbed by nature into the landscape.
