Stefania Urist: Hollow(ed)

From a sculptor informed by environmental research, Urist’s Hollow(ed) is a dystopian forest of felled tree stumps made from cardboard boxes and fossilized organic materials. The body of work explores the “ghosts” of fallen trees and humans, using tree rings to show the slow growth process of nature and the impression of industry and capitalism on the environment. Exploring the relationship between industry, technology and humankind, Urist seeks to address modern society’s environmental destruction through nature’s commodification.
