About Stephanie Reid for HaikuFlash
the distance between human kind and the rest of the natural world began with the first technology, written language. That rift has been growing as societies have become more entrenched in technology.
I concern my art practice with exploring ways to use technology and nature together
in an effort to reconcile that divide.
