Maria Whiteman

The main goal of my artistic practice over the past decade has been to investigate and interrogate the ways that we conceptualize, visualize and narrate our relationships to and understanding of the non-human world, ecology and environment. The main forms that I’ve employed to carry out my projects have been large format digital photography, video and installation art. I want to create a new visual language to understand these intersections of the human-natural world in order to help us think the future in full awareness of the actual character of the physical and mental landscapes we currently inhabit.
