In ecology, the edge effect describes how there is a greater biodiversity of life where two or more ecosystems overlap.
Hand cut designs of Sword Fern, Nootka Rose, Elderberry, Pacific Trailing Blackberry, and Salmonberry emerge to create a forested understory of light. The wing tips of Owl cut the sky to let cyclical moons shine through.
In this time of converging climate and humanitarian crisis, biomimicry – the study of nature and land based cultures – provides the message and the means to solve complex human problems. Through the process of re-wilding space and elevating shadow, Edge Effect serves as a metaphor and translation of interconnected nature based systems.
