The collaborative work we have done since 1983 has attempted to bring viewers into direct, intense contact with the raw materials of nature, so that they can come to see themselves as part of the seamless continuity of the natural world. We work through simplification and minimal arrangement of materials to create a clarity that reduces the distance between the viewer and the object.
