Because We Are Nature is a surreal environment that shows how pleased we are with ourselves.

Because We Are Nature is an exhibit of our everyday life and fears. Too fat, too skinny, did we leave the stove on, are our teeth too yellow, scared of worms and turnips, the taste of fingernail clippings are we too ugly, are your panty lines showing, frightened of bees and electric wiring... we are composites of nature and fears.

Because We Are Nature is our lives birthing a new every moment, we're alive and beyond..….
stepping into the sunlight of our casual journeys.
