M.irbyana Project

New work from the M.irbyana project, (Ornamental invaders) by donna davis.

This work reflects on the human ecological narrative between aesthetics and stewardship, exploring the struggle between native and introduced flora species from an anthropocentric viewpoint: revealing the delicate dichotomy between control and interdependence.
