"We often forget that we are nature. Nature is not something separate from us. So when we say that we have lost out connection to nature, we've lost our connection to ourselves" 
- Andy Goldsworthy.
Lana Adams
Whilst having spent the past three years studying and living in a urban environment, Lana's work has continually concentrated on the natural world. As hard as the world tries to fight it - nature is man and man is nature. In a world where concrete is idealised over grass, nature is so far detached from us as creatures that when we return to nature it can either become a place of beauty and meditation, or - sadly to some - one where it doesn't seem natural at all anymore. Through this series of images Lana has explored this sense of returning to the environment and the connection between the physical forms of human and nature.

"I still have so much more to learn from my surroundings" - Lana Adams

Lana will have just completed her Bachelor of Visual Art and Design at AC Arts. Come and celebrate this, the end of the year (and...the world?), with us at the reading room.
