Abstract or Summary

Group exhibition between Chinese and New Zealand artists. Artist Statement: The photographs in the series From Certainty to Doubt explore notions of mankind’s relationship with nature. The work examines some of nature’s fundamental survival strategies – mimicry, camouflage, and deception and how humans have adapted these strategies in their lives. The series Hydroseeded Woods is a vivid example of humans mimicking the natural process of plant growth and regeneration by adopting a technique known as Hydroseeding. This method adds a concoction of seeds that may or may not grow naturally in the location to slurry, which includes fertiliser, tackifyng agents, fibre mulch and dyes. The resulting seed mat usurps the natural growing process, increasing germination and plant development by 300%.
