IMBY Studies

The series In My Back Yard (IMBY) is part of my graduate work for the Photo Academy in Amsterdam (December 2018). By turning my garden into a laboratory, I use organic objects and materials from my surroundings to reshape nature. 

Science and technology have brought us prosperity and a preoccupation with everything that is measurable and predictable. But with the disenchantment of the world, a new desire has arisen. A longing for marvel, serendipity and a logic that is not unambiguous. 

In My Back Yard is a search for that wonder.

In My Back Yard (IMBY) is an investigation into reshaping nature. Why do we people want to control our environment in all kinds of ways? How far are we going to manipulate and control, cultivate and tame the world around us?
