About Stephanie Reid for HaikuFlash


As elucidated in Spell of the Sensuous, by David Abram,
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
an effort to reconcile that divide.
