NATURE+1 an element from nature and a human-made guest, such as fabric remnants or thread

NATURE+1 is an ongoing body of work about small moments in the everyday: “unexpected intrusions of beauty,” to quote author Saul Bellow. It’s about conservation and treading lightly, and appreciating a commonplace occurrence: a stick beneath your feet as you walk. Natural materials collected from the streets, backyards, and woods of northern California and southeastern Ohio.
