Nature Will Not Miss Us.
Nature Will Not Miss Us is a reminder of the power of nature and its ability to thrive in the absence of human interference.
Nature Will Not Miss Us is part of the Breckenridge International Festival of Arts, Aug 10–19, 2018. The work is a site specific piece newly created for BreckCreate to fit the Old Masonic Hall on Main Street in Breckenridge, CO.

Nature Will Not Miss Us is inspired by the Anping Treehouse in Tainan City, Taiwan. The Anping Treehouse is one banyan tree that for the past 70 years has grown over and consumed an old warehouse, breaking through windows and creeping along walls. Seeing the manmade architecture overrun with the power of one tree a person feels awe and fear. The beauty and power overwhelms us. In the town we keep nature controlled, pruned, and potted, but we must remember that nature surrounds us.
