WARP THE FAIRYTALE: FREEZE THE GAZE Nature offers me a way to tap into my resilience. Disconnection happens too easily. I look for beauty in simple materials and experiences to reconnect, holding things sacred. I have been using a 360 camera to capture images that convey a simultaneous sense of distortion and harmony, beauty and apparition. The distortion of the image allows me to play with light, image, and color. The forest is a relief to walk in, but it is a haunted beauty knowing millions of climate change deniers like my mother threaten it along with my children’s survival. During the isolation and unpredictability of the pandemic, the wildness of nature has been a vital connection.
