Wildlife in our cities and often built-up terraria's and become a reflection of the city's status and cultural standing. It is critical that we incorporate nature into cities, but we must do so in a way that supports urbanity rather than replaces it. This exhibition invites the viewer to experience a fraction of the space that coexists in our environment, nature, and humanity occupy the same area and build a sustainable life together. We focus on a personal space of greenery of the school, The Meadow at Chestnut. The massive shift for this is that it's about recognizing the value of urban wildlife, and acknowledging that people live and work in cities, every one of those people is an opportunity to bring about change. It is essential for us to recognize nature's contribution to our way of living and how they help us build this place. This piece brings together the theme of Space and Place uniting nature through a social and immersive environment that the gallery space is to society.
