Artist: [sic]

Eiffel” by [sic]

I come from a small agricultural town in Northern California where the line between nature and cordoned human life was never strict. Since leaving for college at age 18, I have more or less lived in large cosmopolitan cities: Los Angeles, Madrid, San Francisco, New York City. Now I know the nature of a human soul split between city and country.

The anthropocentric city connects human to human but disengages human from its natural connection. Electric light extends the day; buildings allow only a small degree glimpse at the movement of celestial bodies; our internal clocks are rearranged; a grid is laid over the structure and flow of life. The urban human is essentially unplugged from natural flow; “nature” becomes a life preserver thrown into a sea of concrete.

From this standpoint, “Eiffel” shows respect and astonishment with the feats of human while looking skyward and asking this question of “Where is Nature?” In this case, I believe an exclamation mark is a good addition alongside the question mark.
