In New Zealand, as in the United States, nature is continuously manipulated for display and consumption. Our wilderness has become a commodity where the consumers (both farmer and tourist) manipulate or dictate land use. In 2005, I undertook a residency on a New Zealand farm, where I worked on a series of images called The Gibson Lemon. In 2010, four trips were made to the Florida Everglades, during which the series Beeline Highway was created. This work continues my visual investigation of the dichotomy between nature and man, questioning the motives of a culture in conflict.
