Title

Life Within Nature

Description

My piece hopes to explore the effects and juxtaposition between nature as an open space with the Native Americans with the privatization from the colonists. Here, it shows the re-creation of the gentrification map shown in class with the Mississippi river and the areas around it bounded into the different plots of land that people can acquire which are then also separated into the various smaller plots for the different types of crops. For people viewing this piece, maybe they will draw the connection between industrialization for the betterment of producing agriculture but also see that it creates a divide between nature and humans. "Life Within Nature" expands on the idea of production by commodification and recognize that we are not at one with nature anymore, we are just living within the nature that we decided to divide.

I used a foam board and put sewing pins into it to create the grid-like platform for me to wind sewing thread around.
