About Stephanie Reid for HaikuFlash


As elucidated in The Spell of the Sensuous, by David Abram,
the distance between human kind and the rest of the natural world 
with the first technology, written language.
That rift is growing as societies become more 
entrenched in technology.
In an effort to reconcile that divide, in my own life,
I explore ways to harmonize technology and nature through art.
