Artist Hailey Lowe chats with WonderRoot’s Floyd Hall about how nature, history, and technology influence her work. Focusing on ideas of America’s urban movement into natural settings, Hailey Lowe investigates the tension between urbanism and nature, technology and nature, our bodies and the land we live on. Through her performative installations and video documentation she explores ephemerality, identity and boundaries through the lens of technology.
As Lowe advocates a way for technology, urbanism and nature to coexist, she questions where we are headed in a world that breathes technology. Lowe states, ” I want people to draw boundaries for themselves and question the boundaries technology, urbanism and human life has imposed on nature.”
